U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions will stop by the Park Cities YMCA on Tuesday morning for a check presentation honoring the partnerships between the YMCA and three other local nonprofits. Sessions will speak about 9:30 a.m.
The event will pay tribute to Ability Connection Texas and its adaptive aquatics program, which was launched three years ago. The adaptive aquatics program includes instruction on how to float independently and with a device, how to control breathing, kicking, basic paddling, front crawl, back stroke and jumping or diving into the pool. Children also receive special attention and instruction that may help develop competency in the water as well as improve overall coordination, speech and language, range of movement, social and attending behaviors.
The Rise School of Dallas and Connecting Point of Park Cities also will be recognized. Both organizations will soon use the Y facilities.
