During her course of study, Joey took several modules relating to Adolescent, Developmental, and Abnormal Psychology, where she gained a deeper understanding of developmental disorders and management of these conditions. These developmental disorders include Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), externalizing disorders such as Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) and Conduct Disorder (CD), as well as internalizing disorders such as Anxiety and Depression.
Joey previously worked as a teacher in Kidsglobal International Pte. Ltd. in Hangzhou, China, where she delivered lessons to children between the ages of 2 – 6 years old.
Some of her roles include planning lessons that are appropriate for the target age group, preparing the corresponding props needed and executing the lesson plan in both English and Chinese.
During her time in China, she has worked with children with developmental difficulties, such as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
Joey’s work experiences and her knowledge gained through the academic courses over the past years had helped her tremendously in managing children’s difficult behaviours and teaching them skills needed for their future.
She believes strongly that every child deserves to learn to their best capability, regardless of any pre-existing conditions they might have and she is motivated to support these children to attain that goal of independence.
