Testimonials and Reviews

for Wenggie Fong

We noticed huge improvements in Owen’s language skills after the first few sessions with Teacher Wenggie. He is now able to express his needs through words and sentences and is continuing to make good progress in his verbal expressions. This is evident through his interactions at home and at the daycare centre. He is now able to respond to questions and engage and concentrate longer in class. Over a short period of time, we have also noticed that his pronunciation is so much clearer, and this makes it easier for us to understand what he is trying to say.

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!
