“I am a fully registered Speech Therapist under the Allied Health Professional Council (Singapore).
I enjoy working with children and their families, and decided to embark on a mid-career switch, beginning with a Bachelor’s Degree in Childhood and Family Education, then an Advance Diploma in Early Childhood Intervention (Special Needs), followed by a Master’s Degree in Speech Pathology from Flinders University (Adelaide, Australia).
I value empowerment, to the children by providing them with strategies to function more effectively in their environment, AND to their caregivers, who I consider the best therapists, as they can provide continuous and consistent support for their children.
I hope to be able to partner with caregivers, and journey with them to help their children learn and flourish under our love and care. ”
“I started my journey with a Bachelor’s Degree in Biomedicine, and subsequently furthered my studies with a Master’s Degree in Speech Pathology from The University of Melbourne, Australia.
I believe that every child deserves a voice, and it gives me great sense of satisfaction to be part of each child and their family’s journey.
Since working in this profession, I have the privilege of routinely observing in the kids and their families, more of what is good in people - strength, resilience, dignity, love, compassion - than I ever fully appreciated before becoming a Speech Therapist. I hope that I can continue to play a part in making a change in each child and their families’ lives.”
“I am a Speech-Language Therapist, originally from South Africa. I have a passion for linguistics and languages. My Speech Therapy journey started in South Africa, where I worked at a school for children with special needs. Since moving to Singapore with my husband in 2001, I have mainly been involved in various linguistic projects and coaching for adults on learning a foreign language. In 2018 I joined the team at Summer’s Therapy Services as a Speech-Language Therapist.
It gives me great joy to see a person develop, and become a whole and happy person in this world. In my free time, when I am not trying to learn a new language, I love to bake and paint.”
“I am a fully registered Speech Therapist with the Allied Health Professions Council of Singapore (AHPC).
I specialize in supporting children with challenges in speech and language development, social communication, feeding and Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC). In my experience working across different special schools and early intervention centres; I have had the privilege of working with children with a wide range of diagnoses and needs.
I employ a holistic approach when tailoring support for each family I work with. My aim is to always maximize potential and I feel it is best achieved when we adjust the way we teach according to how the child learns best. Each child is different, every family is special, and our journey should be accompanied with relentless support. I hope to have the privilege of joining in and supporting your journey today. ”
“My career path as an IT Engineer began in an unorthodox manner, as I was formally trained with a Diploma in Aeronautical Engineering (Singapore Polytechnic) and Bachelor’s Degree (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering (Nanyang Technological University Singapore).
During my full-time employment as a manufacturing engineer, I took up coding as a hobby. This hobby proved to be more useful than I could imagine, because with the skills I acquired in this hobby, I can now work remotely for Summer’s as an IT Engineer while caring for my grandfather in my hometown in Malaysia.
Other than loving coding and almost all IT stuff, I also enjoy catching crabs with friends, running and hand-to-hand combat.”
