PRESCRIPTION PROGRAM


The Arkansas Water Smart Babies RX program seeks to engage physicians and families to discuss drowning prevention and water safety at the 9 months and 12 months' well-child visit. The patient receives a water-smart safety booklet and a "prescription" for swim lessons. The lessons are NOT covered by insurance.

This is a 4 - lesson course that introduces the basics of water safety and drowning prevention for infants and toddlers. Each child must be accompanied by an adult in the water.

Ages 4 months - 3 years

30 minutes, once weekly; WEST LR Location only

In four sessions, we will cover the following concepts:

  • Constant and dedicated surveillance, barriers, proper use of a life-jacket, use flotation to help someone who is in trouble in the water and the importance of early application of CPR
  • How to teach your child to enter the pool using the wall, float and kick and transition to submersion

***The evening classes include an additional Spanish-speaking coach!
