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.

Most importantly, Alex zealous passion in Special Needs is shown clearly as he is always very responsive in every of our questions. To the extent that it robs his personal time. We are truly grateful for Alex for his help. We will always recommend other parents to Nurture Pods due to their wealth of knowledge of special needs.FC Chan, Edward
Nurture Pods is where we learnt on ABA approach more than just reading the articles. Alex and his team of therapists are professional and dedicated. They observed our child’s needs, not only for those that we are raising concerns of, but also for other generals areas and aspects that we may have missed thinking about as parents. Alex and his team provided their expertise, but yet, still very close to the personal touch on the needs and development of our child. Thank you for your support and effort in helping to bring out the best in our child.Ecclesia Chang
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.Cherry Huang | Principal of Educa
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.Chin Liang Hwee | Centre Manager of Mothergoose Preschool and Child Development Centre
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.Jamie | Parent
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.L. P. | Parent
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. This has led to our son being able to assimilate into mainstream Primary school and he is currently coping very well in his new environment. We are very grateful to have Alex as our son’s therapist.M. L.| Parent

My family is thankful to the team at Nurture Pods for supporting myson in adjusting to the primary school environment. He was initially confused and discouraged in Primary 1 because he could not cope with the difference in expectations as well as his own sensory and communication issues.
When we contacted Nurture Pods, they were quick to assist in observations and meeting with the relevant educators. We truly felt supported throughout and greatly encouraged by the shadow support teachers who provided us prompt feedback. We are glad to see our son transitioning to independence and much happier in his school environment. Thank you.Sau Ling | Parent
