What is she struggling with? I was a swim instructor and have worked with swimmers with visual impairments before, maybe I can help.

I know they need to get in the water more with her for hands in instruction. But is there anyone, blind teen or adult who swims, who can provide any tips? I know it will all come in time but she is also frustrated to be with younger kids because she isn't at a level to move up to more similar age kids because of her needing more work.
