With close to 2 decades of experience in the field, Samantha Tang has amassed experience in both the private and public sector. Over the years, Samantha has worked with children with a wide range of developmental challenges, from Global Developmental Delay (GDD) to Dyscalculia. She is highly experienced in the assessment and diagnosis of developmental issues, as well as in preparing reports for placement in special education schools or examination exemptions and accommodations.

 

Samantha is also able to provide Individual Education Plans (IEPs) for her clients in areas such as school readiness for Pre-P1 children. Being a highly passionate and dedicated Psychologist, Samantha is always willing to go the extra mile to serve her clients and their caregivers. Palpable care and concern for the clients she works with helps her to forge close relationships with her clients and their caregivers.

It is Samantha’s passion to serve that pushed her to develop a keen interest in providing customised parent/caregiver training to the parents/caregivers of her clients. Examples of training topics include introducing non-verbal communication or developing play skills with a child. Caregiver training plays a crucial role in ensuring the best therapy outcomes for a child as caregivers spend a significant amount of time with the child they are caring for.

“We would like to thank Samantha Tang for her help in giving great advice with regards to our son’s ASD condition. She gave very constructive suggestions on how to manage his behaviour in class and in public, and also for sharing many good strategies with us to embrace the situation and give us hope in managing him better. Most importantly, her humour and friendliness put us at ease. Her zealous passion in Special Needs is shown clearly as she is always very responsive to all of our questions, to the extent that it robs her personal time.
