After performing a comprehensive review, the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES) awarded Frogglez Goggles the designation of Certified Autism Resource. IBCCES, an independent credentialing and certification board with a focus on cognitive disorders, is the accrediting body for the Certified Autism Resource (CAR) program and other designations and certifications for professionals in healthcare and education.
The purpose of the Certified Autism Resource program is to ensure that therapists, educators, and parents have the knowledge and access to products and services they need to improve the lives of individuals on the spectrum.
Adaptive swim lessons and water therapy are a critical part of reducing this alarming statistic. Frogglez stretchy comfort strap allows people on the spectrum to manage their goggles independently. Swim instructors can devote more time to swimming skills instead of wasting precious time adjusting and fitting goggles. The end result is a better-prepared swimmer.
The universal comfort strap can be used with almost any swimming goggles, so Frogglez can be tailored to meet specific needs. For example, using a wide-view swim mask helps with proprioception issues, or use tinted goggles to manage stimuli.
The chunky strap is easy for little hands to manage, empowering kids with control over the fit
Velcro tabs provide fidget distraction to divert negative focus and promote higher levels of concentration when focusing on tasks
The soft fabric-covered strap provides gentle pressure that can reduce anxiety and provide a more positive swimming experience
Frogglez reduce excessive stimulation by gliding overhead instead of tangling and pulling hair
The experts in adaptive swim certification at Swim Angelfish recommend Frogglez Goggles in their equipment training for their popular Swim Whisperer certification program. Co-founder and owner Ailene Tisser called the Frogglez strap a "gamechanger." The soft neoprene split-strap glides overhead without pulling hair and can attach almost any swimming goggles.
Frogglez Goggles were designed by a dad after seeing his daughter struggle with her swim goggles at her first swim lesson. He watched the kids and instructors get distracted from the lessons by goggles that fell off or got tangled in their hair. Because the children didn’t have the motor skills to adjust their own goggles, the swim instructors spent more time helping with goggles than teaching.
Today, people around the world are better swimmers thanks to the thoughtful design of Frogglez. The small family business is still passionate about helping kids manage their world independently. The team of employees believes all children should have fun learning to swim and exploring the underwater world, instead of struggling with their swim goggles.
