Swim Angelfish Adaptive Swim Training program recommends Frogglez

October 21, 2020

Parents of kids with sensory sensitivities regularly share that Frogglez Goggles are the only swim goggles that work well for their kids. According to Ailene Tisser and Cindy Freedman, co-founders of the premier Adaptive Swim Certification program in the nation, the patented Frogglez strap is what makes the difference. Swim Angelfish helps swimmers with various special needs reach their full potential through aquatic therapy sessions and Swim Whisperers™ swim lessons

Therapy practice expanded into adaptive swim instruction

Tisser and Freedman, a Physical Therapist and Occupational Therapist, run a thriving swim therapy and adaptive swim training practice built on years of knowledge and experience. Through swim lessons, water-based therapy sessions, seminars, and workshops, they help swimmers with attention difficulties, anxiety, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), sensory challenges, physical disabilities, and coordination difficulties. Over and over, their clients returned after therapy, asking for swim lessons because they couldn’t find instructors that worked with their kids.

Faced with the alarming statistic that drowning is the leading cause of death for children with autism, it became apparent there was a gap in swim instruction. So, they expanded their practice into adaptive swim instruction.

Frogglez eliminate challenges that traditional goggles pose for kids on the spectrum

Ailene Tisser, co-founder of the successful program, said she initially found out about Frogglez from parents of their swimmers. She said Frogglez swim goggles work for kids with sensory sensitivities because they:

  • slide overhead without pulling hair
  • don’t require constant adjustments
  • don’t slip or leak
  • provides reassuring sensory input

Aquatic teams need adaptive swim education

Many families with children who have special needs have trouble finding swim instructors trained and certified to work with individuals on the spectrum. They seek swim instruction programs that have invested in research-based training and professional review for the best outcome.

The premier adaptive swim certification program in the U.S.

Tisser and Freedman wanted to share their extensive knowledge and best practices to ensure that children worldwide could enjoy the best possible experience during swim training. So, they launched a worldwide certification program for swim instructors. The online program, called Swim Whisperers™, recommends Frogglez Goggles for use in adaptive swim techniques and lesson training. Swim Whisperer sessions help swim instructors create the lifelong skills kids need to be comfortable and safe in the water.

Size Guide

Not sure which size to order?

Measure your head circumference!

Place soft measuring tape around your child’s head about 1/2-inch above the ear, across the mid-forehead where a hat would sit. Hold the tape firmly, but not too tightly, and write down the measurement of where the tape meets. If you don’t have a soft measuring tape, use a piece of string and measure as directed. Then, lay the string on a ruler or yardstick to determine measurement.

Head Circumference

Recommended Goggles

15-18 inches Frogglez Youth (3-6)
16-22 inches Frogglez Youth (3-10)
19-22 inches Frogglez Adult (10+)


In between sizes?

Frogglez universal strap adapts to almost any swim gogglesFrogglez Goggles easily adjust to fit most kids. Kids can tighten or loosen without taking them off using the Velcro straps. Use the optional black silicone rings included with every pair of Frogglez to adjust even more.

Make Frogglez smaller: Remove the silicone rings for smaller children and thread the Velcro right through the goggles.

Make Frogglez bigger: Adding an extension ring is easy! Double up the rings to extend the strap length for bigger kids.  


Still having trouble with the fit?

Frogglez Goggles use a soft silicone to create a leakproof seal. The gentle pressure of the seal is designed to withstand cannonballs, dives, and splashes. That said, eyes and noses are different sizes and shapes, which can affect the way goggles fit.

There isn’t one perfect goggle, only the one that best fits your face. If you find that the eyepieces don’t fit, don’t fret. Frogglez universal strap attaches to most goggles on the market.  The black silicone rings included with each pair of Frogglez makes attachment to other goggles simple.


We offer a fit guarantee!
