Alex comes across as very approachable, open minded and structured in his approach. He displays a high level of professionalism in whatever he does, whilst at the same time not lacking the personal touch. Due to his commitment, belief in the potential of our son and his close working partnership with us parents, he is able to bring about significant positive changes in our son’s ASD condition within a short time. From observing and identifying the areas of concern, to tailoring focused efforts to manage them, Alex followed through diligently.
My son is coping with mainstream school work and is able to understand the social demands on him, thanks to the help Alex Liau and his team mate have been giving us over the years. Alex’s experience as an ABA therapist and his patience in dealing with children with learning difficulties have greatly benefitted my child. His dedication is evident as he went the extra mile to meet with my child’s teachers and sat in during lessons to try and fully understand how my son was fairing in class. We hope to see many years more of collaboration with Alex as I see him as a key contributor to my son’s success in school and in the social environment.
Alex worked with my son for almost two years, at home and in school. It is a pleasure having Alex around. He is always cheerful and patient when it comes to teaching my son. His feedback after each session is very useful as well, teaching me how to manage my child. He shadowed my son in school with another therapist for 3 times a week, and after half year of shadowing, my son can manage on his own in childcare. However, I let them continue with the shadowing to work on social skills. Though my son no longer needs shadowing now, I still keep in contact with Alex, for he is such a wonderful therapist and also a wonderful friend.
Alex has demonstrated his ability in his work with special children at Mothergoose. His knowledge and experience with special children enables him to employ a combination of approaches and techniques in supporting the child’s development. He is friendly and encouraging, yet also firm and focused in helping the child and stretching him appropriately. With his support, the child was able to integrate better within a conventional classroom setting.
Alex gave much more than we ever expected. The school shadowing programme is truly beneficial to our children and the centre. His passion and patience is making a difference.
