What Parents Are Saying...
Ya-Ju was Nura's physical therapist from the very beginning for three years. The work, passion and dedication that Ya-Ju puts into is astounding. My daughter, Nura, was diagnosed with down syndrome and the doctors told me her low muscle tone would give her so many issues while walking and running.
However, with Ya-Ju, we would immediately see how much Nura was able to do. Ya-Ju introduced us to shoe inserts (no one ever told us about that), she gave us exercises to do at home for the week and when Ya-Ju would begin her sessions with Nura, they both would work extra hard together as a team.
Having Ya-Ju in our life as my daughter's physical therapist is nothing short of a miracle. Ya-Ju is family to us. Thank you for everything you have done for Nura.

Are you an Asian mom who feels alone in a foreign country raising your child?
Do you want to connect with other Asian moms with similar cultural backgrounds and beliefs?
Would you prefer speaking Mandarin over English?
Are you challenged or overwhelmed with wondering whether your child is developing properly?
It is not easy raising a child in a foreign country without the closest support system around. Culture plays a huge role in raising a child. It’s important to know whether your child is developing properly, and NOT let language cause a barrier to getting your child the help he or she needs.

Ya-Ju started working with my son, Aidan since he was 11 months old until he was a few months shy of turning three years old. My child has always been a strong-willed child, but Ya-Ju continuously demonstrated patience and calmness during our sessions. She was always punctual and professional. My child would often look forward to his PT sessions and had a great time as Ya-Ju implemented all of his goals in a natural environment.
We also worked with Ya-Ju during the lockdown and participated in telehealth (virtual classes). Ya-Ju was very organized during these sessions, and I believe Aidan received the same quality of care as if we were seeing her in-person. Aidan progressed during their time together, and I am appreciative of that. We're so thrilled that we got to work with such a passionate and knowledgeable therapist as Ya-Ju.
