I qualified as a speech therapist in Singapore after passing the qualifying examination in Speech-Language Therapy in 2016.  I now practise in a private clinic in Singapore, serving primarily paediatric population. The progdramme laid down a solid theoretical framework of different areas of speech therapy.  Most importantly, it equipped me with a toolkit for evidence-based practice.  From theory to practice, I gained hands-on experience from a wide range of clients ranging from pediatric to geriatric care.

研究方法是指透过深入探讨各种研究设计、方法及应用,培养学员的批判思维和解难能力,让学员充份掌握研究和探究分析的技巧,有助他们进行独立研究项目和未来的专业发展。

循证为本毕业专题计划让学员在导师的指导下,选择一个与课程相关的题目进行研究,并制作个人的专题报告,不但让学员展示所学的学科知识和技能,更有助其培养有关研究和学术的写作技巧,建立正确的科学研究态度与价值观,为未来的专业发展打好基础。

After graduating I work as a speech therapist at an NGO.  I am now responsible for reaching out to different kindergartens to help the preschoolers overcome their communication and speech problems.

The most unforgettable moment was when a child greeted me using a full sentence after a summer vacation.  Just one year ago he was not able to say even a single word.  After going through therapy his improvement was incredible.

At University, I had amazing placement opportunities.  I met an elderly woman who had swallowing difficulties. Although I tried many different treatment approaches with her, I made very little progress.  My supervisor, Ms Esther Kwok helped me think through other possible causes; how was her everyday eating habits, if she could manage to swallow her medicine, whether she had family support, and whether she is receiving the necessary nutritional intake based on her current diet?

I find it incredibly meaningful to help those in need, especially during the difficult times of their lives.  It means a lot to the clients as well as their families. I think the strongest attribute of this programme is that it addresses those with learning disabilities. Working at an NGO that emphasizes holistic care, I have to work with educational psychologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, social workers and special child care workers.  This programme prepared me with a collaborative mindset so that I can customize the best therapeutic plan for my clients.

The knowledge and skills are highly transferrable internationally. I passed the clinical certification examination for Speech-language and Audiology Canada. This means I am also qualified to practice as a speech language pathologist in Canada.

I am sure all MScESLPLD students find practicum most challenging but also most fulfilling.  I loved the chance to help a wide range of clients at the Hospital Authority and various NGOs, from children to adults to the elderly. I served clients with swallowing difficulties, speech problems, and students with special educational needs.  Every client is unique, as well as their family. With help from my supervisors, I approached each individual in a unique way. My supervisor Ms Polly Lau was  instrumental to how approached this.

I had a great summer as I was given the chance to join a Speech Language Therapy Summer School in Italy.  Our team won the Best Paper Poster Presentation Award out of the 21 participating universities from Europe, America and Asia.  We demonstrated a unique way to teach Cantonese, to pay attention to the six contrastive lexical tones of Cantonese.
