Diving with a disability – FAQ

The phrase 'scuba diving is for everybody' is very popular in our industry. It is an opinion I personally do not share, but that is a whole other can of worms that needs its own post 🙂

So no, ScubSeaDaisy says scuba diving is definitely not for everybody, but those of you that have special needs and/or physical disabilities are certainly not automatically in that category! Do you have a disability and would like to learn how to dive, have a quick glance through this list of Frequently Asked Questions and let it help you make up your mind.

Q

I think I like to be a diver, but I am afraid of putting my head underwater, scared of fish, frightful to get water in my ears etc. Can I take the scuba course?

A

The IAHD courses start with the 3 x YES principle
medical : YES, you are fit to learn scuba diving and make dives
participant: YES, I want to commit to learning this sport
instructor: YES, I feel confident that I am
personally able to teach you with your condition the skills needed to diveIf any of these 3 is a 'no'; or a 'not sure' you should not persist in taking the course. Learning something new only works when you are in good condition physically & mentally and when all parties involved are 100% motivated.Scuba Diving training, will subject you to situations you may not have encountered before physically & mentally. And even though I will make the whole experience as easy going and fun as possible, you must be aware that dealing with challenging situations is a large part of getting certified.

Q

I am not a good reader, or my condition makes it hard for me to focus on writing. Do I have to complete the theory in order to be a diver?

A

Yes the theory part is integral to the course and must be completed. There are many options for me to help you out with this. For example skype sessions or face to face when you come to any of the locations I am active.

Q

I have no scuba gear, should I get 'some' before I start my course?

A

Scuba equipment is not cheap, and depending on your situation standard equipment may not work optimal for you. I recommend you get your own mask (and wetsuit) so you can get used them and feel comfortable on each dive. If adjustments need to be made to your scuba gear set up, we will know when we start diving

Q

The level 1 and level 2 course are equal to a PADI license. Why shouldn't I just get one of those?

A

PADI (and other large dive organizations) have no special criteria for their instructors to teach adaptive diving. Which means the instructor teaching you will have no background or tools to help you with your specific condition. IAHD instructors are trained to deal with a large array of conditions and are qualified to teach people with physical & light mental disabilities scuba skills. If your Porsche breaks down should we take it to the Porsche service or Joe the car mechanic down town?

  28. Why is it wonderful? Why did you love it? It’s even more important to make a point when you disagree. It’s a waste of time to just write “You’re wrong,” or a longer ranting equivalent.
    Sure, most bloggers will lap up short comments like “Wonderful!” “I love it!” and “Thank you,” and if all you want to do is express gratitude or brighten their day, comments like that are fine, but you’ll make a more lasting impression and a more meaningful contribution to the conversation if you say a bit more.

  29. At that temperature, the chocolate will go bad.” Really, all you’ve said is “You’re wrong.” You need to say *why* the temperature is wrong.
    Make sure you include the reason you disagree. It’s easier than you think to avoid making a point. Consider the comment “You’re spreading lies by saying the ideal temperature for chocolate storage is 28 degrees.

  30. I swear I’ve read comments like “I’ve never worked with chocolate before, but I think 29 degrees would be better than 28 degrees.” That kind of comment is not the way to get positive attention from an influential blogger or establish yourself as an expert.
    When I read comments I’m always amazed by how many people admit (admit!) they have no idea what they’re talking about and then go on to make recommendations, suppositions, or write long rambling analyses based on nothing more than a pure guess.

  31. you’re not adding anything useful when you write comments based on your intuition. You’re not under orders to comment on everything you read. Save your time for commenting about things where you can actually say something useful.
    If you have a question the author didn’t answer about why 28 degrees is best, it’s fine to ask; but when you’re commenting about something that’s based in facts,
