Masters Occupational Therapy, Australia, 2016
Member of Singapore Association of Occupational Therapists
Full registration with Allied Health Professions Council
Hello my name is Ellice. I am an Occupational Therapist from Singapore. I was trained in Australia where I obtained my Master of Occupational Therapy Studies at The University of Queensland. As a paediatric occupational therapist, I am always inspired by the little people I meet.
Prior to joining Kaleidoscope, I gained experiences both in Australia and Singapore. It was at this time that my passion extended to working with children who were impacted by sensory and emotional challenges, and motor skill difficulties. I also worked at an Early Intervention Programme for Infants and Children (EIPIC) centre at AWWA for the last 3 years. I have provided individual and group therapy for children aged 2 to 8 years old among a transdisciplinary team. I have also conducted several workshops for caregivers and teaching staff over the past years to help them have a better understanding of sensory processing, toilet training and handwriting.
During my practice, I thrive on seeing the excitement on children’s faces when they have completed a once challenging task for them. Building rapport with families and children to me is incredibly important, as having a healthy relationship creates comfort and trust in one another. My desire is to provide quality service to all children and families. Hence, I am passionate about lifelong learning and am a relentless pursuer of new information and enjoy seeing how the dots connect. I will be starting my certification in Sensory Integration this year.
I am thrilled to be a part of the Kaleidoscope therapy team and I hope to share my experiences with you and your child.
