While covering “Surfers Healing” at Folly Beach, SC, I had an opportunity to talk with one of the sponsors of the event. Tara Girch, of MarTar Swimming Schools  has made it her mission to make water safety a priority for special needs families.

She and her husband formed an organization called The Lucky Duck foundation, Inc that provides scholarships for families of children with special needs for quality swim instruction and other therapeutic services they may need.

In this brief interview she shares some insights on how to make swimming fun for kids with sensory issues.
