HDS101, Trimester 1, 2021Assessment Task 32 but he will squeal, bite, hit, and cry if he feels frustrated or frightened. Raj’s family and teachers have developed an ‘About Me’ book that explains his communication needs and preferences to others. Raj has always loved water and is a safe swimmer (under supervision) but finding him a suitable swimming class has been difficult. Last summer his parents attempted to enrol him in a swim class but he was turned away as soon as the instructor learned he had a disability. Because of his sensory processing difficulties, Raj finds large group situations distracting and overwhelming. He does not cope well with loud noises or bright lights. He has also been bullied at his school and is anxious around adults and other children. Raj’s parents are keen to enrol him in lessons at a new pool that has recently opened. His mum visited the pool last week but felt intimidated by the enrolment form which was very long and complex. She is also worried she could misunderstand the instructor because her English skills are not fluent yet. Despite these concerns, Raj’s mum strongly values the opportunity for Raj to be included in a mainstream leisure setting and will do whatever it takes to make his lessons a success.
