Iris is an Educational Psychologist who has more than 7 years of experience working with children in schools and clinical settings. She holds a Master’s degree specializing in Educational Psychology from the Nanyang Technological University (Singapore). Being on the Register of Qualified Test Users (RQTU), she is certified to administer a range of psycho-educational assessments.
Iris’ passion in helping individuals with cognitive difficulties led her to begin her career as a Research Psychologist at the Singapore General Hospital’s Neurology Department. She subsequently joined the Ministry of Education (MOE) to further pursue her passion in supporting children with learning difficulties and special educational needs. As an Educational Psychologist at MOE, she provided assessment and consultation services to support children with a wide range of learning and behavioural needs, including children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Dyslexia and Language Impairment. She has also conducted numerous training workshops for school teachers and allied educators as well as worked with school leaders to enhance the support of students with special educational needs in mainstream schools.
Iris believes that a success-driven rather than deficit-based approach would better engage children and inspire a love of learning. She is passionate about helping parents to focus on what their children are good at as well as what they enjoy doing, and using those as a basis to inform intervention.
