2018

Supporting Your Child in Chinese

 

"New ways of teaching chinese characters that I was not aware of... useful apps for kids to enhance the learning experience."

 

"Knowing to break up into sides and sounds and applying back into teaching my child."

 

Managing a Child with Social, Emotional and Behavioural Needs (Former Parenting a Child with SpLD)

 

"It is an eye opener, especially to people who do not know about the emotions, behaviour and difficulties these kids are facing. A better understanding towards these kids and ways to help and support them"

 

"It's a very good summary of positive parenting strategies for dyslexic children and participants get to clarify doubts and get specific advice immediately. It would have taken me much longer to research and read up on all the topics that the lecturer touched on in the three hours."

 

Study Smart: Effective Study Skills for Your Child

 

"The workshop has helped me to consider strategies to help students with challenges"

 

"The knowledge learnt was valuable for my professional development and I would recommend fellow AEDs to equip themselves with the same skills to better support students under their care and as well sharing of the knowledge to the parents of the respective students."
