I’m a Canadian-certified speech-language pathologist based in Hong Kong.

My practice specializes in preschoolers and school-aged children, with a focus on special-needs children with speech, language and social-communication deficits.

Services

My expertise is in the assessment and treatment of:

I work with both Cantonese and English-speaking preschoolers with speech, language, and social-communication deficits in Hong Kong and China. I offer individual sessions, parent training workshops, and school-outreach services. In addition to direct therapy, I consult on school admissions processes, and learning support schooling options.

Besides the preschool population, I also work with school-aged students at various local and international schools to facilitate literacy skills development, learning readiness, and social functioning.

For my adult caseload, I provide consultation on accent reduction to cater to their professional needs.

Given Hong Kong’s competitive and often limited schooling options, a significant part of my job centres on guiding parents through admissions processes, and providing assistance in determining their children’s mainstream and special-needs schooling options.

I’m certified to implement the following treatment techniques and Cantonese assessment tests:

PECS
Picture Exchange
Communication System
HKCOLAS
Hong Kong Cantonese Oral Language Assessment Scale
HKCAT
Hong Kong Cantonese Articulation Test
HKGCNT
Hong Kong Graded Character Naming Test
Certificates
Social Thinking
Camperdown Program for Adults who Stutter
