"Our son is on autism spectrum and has a muscle hypotonia which means that he has physical challenges. We have been working with Ms. Yoshie for the past 3 months and the results have been fantastic already. We are seeing our son more confident, his posture is stronger and he is doing physically things he could not before. As a result his cognitive development is speeding up too. Ms. Yoshie is great to work with – she follows his pace and his preferences whilst always finding a way to challenge him. Not too much, not too little, just enough for him to achieve milestones and be happy. We also learned a lot from her and communication with Ms. Yoshie is extremely easy. We got great suggestions on what to work on ourselves with him when at home. Our son loves going to the gym at Futako tamagawa! He get’s stimulation he craves for, he is smiling and is having great fun. Also for parents it is a great fun, we get to climb and do challenges together."
