Dakota & Dathan Nesbitt

“We originally signed Dathan up for swim lessons because we wanted him to respect the water. He had no fear and would jump right in without hesitation. He didn’t know how to swim yet, so it was unsafe. We felt much more comfortable after he started swimming lessons at Universal. We chose private lessons to best suit our family’s busy schedule and for the one-on-one attention.

Dathan’s goal eventually was to make the Overlook swim team before Kindergarten. He did that! His swim lessons instructor Ms. Leah had him practice freestyle and backstroke across the big pool many times when he was ready. He was one of the youngest kids to compete at five years old. He really loves the water, and private lessons were the perfect way to give him the basic life skills of swimming!”

“Dakota was born with a condition called Spina Bifida. Although she is cognitively on the same level as her peers, her mobility is delayed. She is paralyzed in her feet and has reduced sensation throughout her legs. If she were in a group class she would require a bit more attention from the teachers just to keep up. Private lessons have helped her advance at her own speed while getting extra attention that she needs.

When Dakota first came to Leah at age one, she was using a walker and wearing braces to get around. She was just learning to kick her legs. Now, at two and a half, she’s walking, kicking and even floating on her own. Amazing for her!”
