Apart from the private sector, her clinical experience also extends to various settings ranging from acute hospitals to the community and school settings.

 

As a mother of 2 children, Paediatrics holds a special place in Sara’s heart as she sincerely believes in the power of early intervention in changing the developmental trajectory and life of a child. This is what made Sara decide on Paediatrics work as her area of specialisation almost a decade back. Sara’s wealth of experience enables her to be highly flexible and adaptable in her intervention approach. Coupled with her fun-loving nature and pleasant disposition, Sara builds rapport with any child and their parents and/or caregivers quickly and easily.

 

Her main source of motivation is feeling a huge sense of satisfaction when her little clients make progress through therapy and lead more meaningful lives as a result. In addition to practice, Sara is also passionate about lecturing and advocating.

Testimonials and Reviews

for Sara Yeow

Sara has been very helpful since the beginning of Gabriel’s diagnosis. She is a firm and caring person, who pays attention to the smallest things. She would share strategies with me on how to cope with Gabriel’s emotions and behaviours. We have seen improvements in Gabriel’s daily routines and his school teachers have commended him for his improvements. I would say we found the best in Sara and Gabriel can’t wait for his next session with her every week.

Austin has shown tremendous improvements ever since joining MindChamps Allied Care in January 2018. Now, Austin is able to achieve more than before. For example, he is able to do tasks when Daddy and I asked him to do so. He is also better at managing his emotions, resulting in lesser tantrums. Austin has also improved greatly in terms of his eye contact. Even though we are still waiting for Austin to speak, my sister has commented that Austin now knows everything! I want to specially thank the teachers Sara Yeow and Wenggie who have been helping and supporting us during these few months. They have always shared with me practical home activities that are easy for me to reinforce and Austin has been responding well to these activities. Thank you teachers and MindChamps Allied Care!

Jovan has been attending OT with Ms Sara Yeow since she joined MindChamps Allied Care in May 2017. It was through a friend’s recommendation. I find that she is caring, meticulous and helpful. She takes my son’s learning seriously and will go the extra mile to help him. My son has been enjoying therapy with her. I receive feedback weekly through WhatsApp or communication book to keep up with my son’s progress. I believe that by working together, we can help my son to improve. I will recommend anyone to come to her because she is serious in helping kids fulfil their greatest potential.
