How is swimming played differently in the paralympics?

Able bodied swimming and dissability swimming is different as where people have missing limbs extra, the rules that apply in able bodied swimming cannot apply in dissability swimming. For example, on butterfly and breaststroke, the swimmer must touch each wall with both hands, but in a dissability meet, the swimmer would not be able to do this if they only hadhalf anarm. However the swimmer still has to push their half arm foreward as if they were going to touch the wall, but once their other handhas touched, they can turn. Hope this answered your question :)
