Amy is on the swim team at Litchfield High School. She typically swims the 50 freestyle in exhibition and participates with 3 other girls for the 200 relay. Last week Amy swam her personal best with a time of 42.2 seconds! At the beginning of the season I go into a practice and talk to the new girls on the team and explain what Down Syndrome is. I ask them to treat Amy like anyone else on the team, but make a few exceptions for her. I also ask for a volunteer to help Amy with little things, like getting to the bus on time. I exchange phone numbers with the volunteer and she texts me with updates about practice or what time the bus is leaving. Swimming has been a great activity for Amy.
