I am a senior English and Mandarin-speaking speech therapist and have many years of experience working with both children and adults.
I have provided individual and group therapy for preschoolers, school-aged children and adolescents who have individual differences or special needs in schools, clinics and within their homes.
The conditions I have experience with include speech and/or language delay, stuttering, voice disorders and I have worked with children who have diagnoses such as global developmental delay, autism spectrum disorder and Down Syndrome.
I have also conducted assessments and therapy sessions (both individual and group) in clinics and schools in New South Wales, Australia. Prior to joining Kaleidoscope, I have also worked in another private practice and provided therapy services to the Early Intervention Programme for Infants and Children (EIPIC) at Fei Yue Community Services.
I graduated from the University of Sydney with a First Class Honours in Bachelor of Applied Sciences (Speech Pathology). My areas of interest are stuttering, feeding issues, voice disorders and early intervention.
I am passionate about lifelong learning and I strive for clinical excellence. For my honours thesis, my research was focused on a behavioural modification program to increase speech naturalness in Singaporean bilingual individuals who stutter. These research findings were presented at the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association conference in 2010. When I was working in a local restructured hospital, I spearheaded several award-winning clinical improvement projects to help improve the quality of life for the elderly with swallowing difficulties in hospitals and nursing homes in Singapore.
I believe in empowering individuals and in being involved in the community. I am truly blessed to have been able to develop my skills in projects that have contributed to the development of speech services in Singapore and I hope to be able to share my experience with you and your children.
