Testimonials

For my daughter I find so far the main benefits are a class where she is accepted for who she is with no pressure. Great for exercise and muscle tone in a fun environment and great for social skills...........................................Parent in Offaly

Judo Assist is wonderful for my son who is 12. He has been going for 5 yrs now and loves it and looks forward to it weekly. He now has a sense of belonging in a group as most other classes do not cater for kids with Autism.
As a parent of a child with Autism I think the instructor should be cloned because he has every aspect of their needs met like sensory, social, understanding, encouragement, always engaging with them and knows their individual needs like some might calm when thrown others may not like that but he can read it so well and either give them a high five or a throw down depending on what it is they want. They seek him out which means he has their interest... Why? Because he has put a wonderful programme together adapting judo, maybe a bit like play therapy too, he has trained likeminded people and we as parents are overwhelmed by how well it works with our kids, how important it makes them feel and how he sees the ability in every single one of these kids and not the disability.
A very satisfied parent................................................Parent in Galway

The benefits of Judo Assist for our son:
Social integration is very important for children with autism. Usually the mainstream activities may not suit a child with ASD so social integration is only possible at events run for children with special needs. These are actually very difficult to source.

Social integration with physical exercise is even better! Most children with ASD have weak energy and so they need lots of exercise to build up their muscles, strength and endurance.

Opportunities to teach children with ASD how to play safely in a controlled environment. Most children with ASD are very immature socially eg. our 6 year son is only at the level of 3 years in social terms...................................... Parent in Offaly
