    She swims like a dolphin, it's pretty amazing to watch.
    Our daughter (also on the autistic spectrum) swims like that, too.

    When she was quite little and we would go to a hotel, she'd make her way from one end of the pool to the other by sort of bouncing off the bottom when she needed some air. Scared the dickens out of other people at the pool, seeing this tiny child in the deep end.

      ones at the bottom of the deep end, but that's where my girl likes it.  I'm glad she's not so wee anymore, so people don't freak out as much, but she can hold her breath for a long time, it makes people nervous.

      You should see her on the high dive.  You've never seen such a big grin in your life.

      I blog about my daughter with autism at her website
