Our Happy Parents

Here’s what our parents and partners say about us

My son has greatly benefited from the school shadow support and intensive homebased programme provided by Nurture Pods.For the past 10 months, we have observed visible behaviourial changes both at home and in school.Alex and his team of committed therapists are thorough with their game plan, and work closely with parents and teachers in their execution. They make good observations and  are quick to intervene and devise new strategies to manage the situations.  We would like to commend Nurture Pods for their excellent services.

– Shannon / Parent of Louis


We chanced upon Nurturepods upon the recommendation of a relevant professional in the field. Upon umpteen sessions of therapy sessions in various centres since the age of 3 and receiving a proper medical diagnosis at age 5.5, we felt like the straw that broke the camel’s back.
Eventually, we sought the help from the centre. Upon the patient and professional intervention via shadowing in school and ongoing social skills’ sessions, Abel has transformed from a reticient and ‘in his own space’ child to a ‘eager to try’ cum resilient one. Not to mention the effusing and responsive Alex who approaches Abel in a systematic and encouraging manner, providing the bridge between us and the teachers in school. It has been a long and audrous journey of 1.5 years for us. We are thankful and appreciative to the team that works tirelessly and relates to our boy in an endearing and constructive manner. Last but not least. we are also glad that he has found a safe haven to empower and be himself.

– Sheryn / Parent of Abel


Nurture-pods was recommended through Special-Kids Clinic and initially was doubtful whether the Centre was resourceful in teaching materials, Teachers skilled and experience to understand individual child and lastly whether efficient to plan accordingly on a momentum basis to achieve the Goals set for the child.Teacher Yan as a Shadow Teacher was resourceful in teaching skills, organised and structured in her teaching on a daily basis, that within three months Alexander was able to write basic letters an achievement which I waited for 3-4 years. Based on the child’s deficiency of learning and knowledge, specific materials were introduced to aid the child’s learning progress.After 6 months, Alexander was able to read a Ladybird Book 1A and was always eager to go to school to learn new activities (Lego, Playmobil etc.), tasks (Matching, tracing etc) and social skills (simple Greetings etc.) with Teacher Yan. Even on weekends, he insisted that he wanted to go to School.With Teacher Yan’s guidance and support Alexander was promoted to two levels up and it was such a joy to see an advance development within a short period of time. With much care, concern, support and guidance from Teacher Yan and Alex Liau, Alexander’s progress was on a tremendous scale within the last two years.
Alex Liau always played a major role to plan and monitor the development of Alexander and without any prompt will occassionally visit Alexander in school to update with the school Teachers the needs of knowledge that needs to be filled and covered, exercises that needs to be practiced and new learning that needs to be taught in advance before being taught in class. Alex Liau has shown so much care, concern and attentive to details to guide the Team of Teachers to teach Alexander the needful knowledge that needs to be known for an average child. It’s such a Joyful experience and journey with Nurture-pods and thus I look forward to the up-coming years to work closely with the Team of Teachers from the Centre.


“Your countless visits to the school, discussions with the teachers and principal showed nothing more than your dedication in your work and Arrvind and we truly thank you for that. In a matter of a year he’s intensive shadow program that has now faded successfully to independent learning has tremendously helped him a lot along with his home sessions. He’s interaction, social skills and academic skills have significantly improved in a short span of time.”

“Dear Nuture Pods Team,
I’m writing to personally thank you for your unconditional support given to my son Arrvind Raaj through the school shadow support and home intervention programme. When Arrvind was diagnosed with ASD, we honestly thought it’s going to be a rough path for us as parents as we were clueless despite the amount of research information we had. In this past year, with a tailored programme for him and the support and guidance from your incredibly capable therapists, the changes we saw in Arrvind was evident month after month. Your countless visits to the school, discussions with the teachers and principal showed nothing more than your dedication in your work and Arrvind and we truly thank you for that. In a matter of a year he’s intensive shadow program that has now faded successfully to independent learning has tremendously helped him a lot along with his home sessions. He’s interaction, social skills and academic skills have significantly improved in a short span of time. I honestly have nothing more to say than to ensure from our part as parents that our son receives the continuous guidance and support he needs from the right team of professional, dedicated people from Nurture Pods, as he will be progressing to mainstream primary school successfully in 2018. Thank you again Team Nurture Pods.
