Abstract: This study is pursued to find the role of Aquatic Training Program for children with special needs. Sensory profile questionnaire was used to assess the before and after performance of each students of each groups for Vestibular Processing, of 25Children average of age nine years, randomly selected from Asha AWWA school at Delhi, India. Participants were divided into two groups Experimental (13) and Control groups (12). Result of Two Way ANOVA reflects positive accelerated change only in experimental group, showing moderate to considerable benefits with 27 session aquatic training program. In addition, individualized improvement was also studied, which resulted into minor to major enhancement of vestibular processing among all the experimental group participants. Hence a prolonged Structured Aquatic Training Program (intervention) is off paramount to get the best results. These findings also enhance the preceding research work based on aquatic intervention as vestibular senses develop first and controls other senses since the baby is in womb, so it is important to develop this sense so other sense can process better to acquire a better life.
Keywords: Special need, aquatic training program, vestibular processing, standard of living, quality of life.
