Therapy 101: When Reality Hits

What is it like to be a primary school student in Singapore? I’m not sure if you are aware, but there’s no ‘repeating’ or ‘retaining’ or ‘stay back’ or ‘not promoted’ in Primary School. (There goes all those warnings some of us scream at our kids!) Every child in Singapore has to go through six…

There’s an update on Nadine’s development. I made an important decision that is a major turnaround from my previous stand. Some time in April 2013 , I decided to put her through the official system of getting her diagnosed. This meant sending her to KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital. For a long while, (in fact,…

Recently, I was hit with a sudden thought about Nadine and her friends. She’s a compliant girl who is easy going. But she will not aggressively make friends. She’s more the “let others make friends with me” type. And as part of the natural protective instincts we have, she’s been very sheltered with regards to…

Many have asked me about Nadine—how did I know that she was delayed in her development, what did I do, and what’s next. The answers are all found here. However, we ventured to a new milestone last week! You see, Nadine has been going for private Speech Therapy and Physiotherapy. It’s not cheap, but it…

15 April 2013 Dear Meimei: Happy Birthday my pretty princess! Today we celebrate you! Everything that you are—who you’ve become, what you like, the things you say, stuff that make you laugh, stuff that make you cry… we celebrate you today, dear Nadine! I remember when you were a baby. One of the easiest babies…

What happens at therapy? Is it just some games? Or hands-on activity to get the child the think? Surely you can do that at home? Do you really need a therapist to do that? These are some questions that are thrown to me when people find out that Nadine goes for therapy. I know they…

I’ve received some lovely emails and comments about Nadine and I thought should do one post that made me a super proud mummy. Well, Nadine, with all her therapy sessions have improved tremendously. And here’s a short video of her performing during the school’s Chinese New Year concert. Check out her smile and her enthusiasm!…
