What Parents Say About Swim Possible
"We Highly Recommend Swim Possible."
" Our son learned how to swim at a very young age. Since he has Autism and is considered non-verbal, we decided to hire Sonja to work with him on swimming techniques and safety guidelines in the water. We continue to see Sonja on a weekly basis. It may be small steps that we take to improve week after week but it is the consistency and the repetition of these techniques (arm movement, legs, face etc) that matters the most to our son. His swimming success is due to Sonja's ability to be patient with his progress and her determination to provide outstanding service to ensure sound and safe results. We highly recommend Swim Possible to anyone looking to build a strong foundation of swimming techniques."
"The Results Have Been Beyond Exceptional."
Our son, James, has been a student of Swim Possible for two years. The results have been beyond exceptional, and I recommend this to any parent. We live on a lake so it was imperative for us to insure he knew how to swim, for both safety and recreation purposes. James started swimming lessons 4 years ago via community education classes. He progress nicely until he go to a point where he needed to put his head underwater to move onto the next levels of lessons which he was unable to do. He was not getting any of one-on-one attention to help him overcome that fear, thus hit a dead end. We were referred to Sonja from a schoolmate parent. He bonded with Sonja immediately, and with one-on-one attention she was able to work with him to not only overcome his fear of going underwater, but the pool and the lessons have become his “happy place”. He can now do most swim strokes, do many laps unaided, swim underwater and has absolutely no fear. We will continue with the lessons as she now includes focus on other life skills including listening, practicing hard, learning new skills, and interacting better with others. For any parent that wants their child to learn how to swim, and in a way that focuses both on the fun and the effort needed, Swim Possible is the best option possible. I strongly recommend.
