Kit Kwan is a Singapore Registered Psychologist (SRP) and an Approved SRP Supervisor with the Singapore Psychological Society. She found her calling as an Educational Psychologist more than a decade ago and made the decision to pursue this profession as a life-long career and to work with persons with special needs.

 

She has more than 13 years of experience in psychological testing, assessment, and intervention. The individuals she has worked with include those with autism, learning disabilities, intellectual disabilities, behavioural and emotional difficulties. She has had experience working in early intervention centres, special education (SPED) schools, an integrated preschool, as well as private educational setup which has mainstream students with special needs. She is also familiar with conducting assessments for placement in SPED schools and examination exemptions or access arrangements in mainstream schools.
