Danica earned her Master of Science in Speech and Language Pathology from the National University of Singapore in 2016. She has been working in the pediatric settings for three (3) years since her graduation. She obtained her clinical experience through working with children and adults at restructured hospitals (National University Hospital, Tan Tock Seng Hospital) as well as in Rainbow Center, a school for children with special needs. She also completed a thesis on “Oral Narratives of English-Dominant Singaporean Preschoolers”, which provides preliminary normative data for clinicians to assess preschoolers who are at risk of language impairment.
Danica has clinical experience in managing children with various developmental and communication issues, including those who have Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Global Developmental Delay (GDD), speech and language impairment, as well as those with limited skills in social communication. She has worked with students with hearing impairment at the Singapore School for the Deaf (SSD). She knows basic sign language in order to communicate with students with hearing impairment. She is also trained in PROMPT (Prompts for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets), Social Thinking® Approach and More Than Words® by The Hanen Program.
Danica strongly believes that working together with the child’s parents and other professionals will maximize the child’s strengths and uncover the full potential that every child possesses.
