Early Intervention Program


Water offers a unique therapeutic environment. We are working 3 dimensionally with an invisible plinth. The body is fully supported yet we have access to every part.

This environment is created because of the unique hydrodynamic and thermal properties of water. The aims of Aquatherapy should always reflect the aims of land-based interventions.

However, aqua therapy may be beneficial when other approaches have failed. The Play Project has a big therapy pool with various depths. Aquatherapy is always done on a one to one basis. To secure safety and enhance progress.

Everyone regardless of their physical ability/ level can be both assisted and challenged by being in the water.

The Unique properties of the water allow children to work on developmental skills such as crawling, walking, rolling, and jumping.

Buoyancy can assist, support or resist, depending on the therapy goal. The child who likes his bath and has had positive experiences in the pool will be highly motivated to learn in the aquatic environment.

Motor planning, self-regulation, speech, oral motor control, strength and coordination are just a few areas that are likely to improve as a result of therapy in the water.

Our therapist Sri Devanayagi Parameswaran passion for children with special needs has ignited within her the passion to explore as many ways as possible to serve the needs of special kids. Being born in a country under sea level, surrounded by water growing up, and a competitive swimmer all through her youth; using water as a way to connect with children was a natural thing.

In her first career in Holland, she was a qualified intensive care nurse. While being a nurse she worked in an intensive care unit for children. She is also a great sound healing therapist which she learned at the Mahavidya Temple in TN India.
