Breanna started as an early intervention teacher at Rainbow Centre and found passion in working with children who were differently abled. During her stint at Rainbow Centre, Breanna found occupational therapy very fulfilling, and pursued a mid-career switch.
Breanna has since worked in the public healthcare setting as well as in a private therapy clinic. She has worked with a wide range of caseloads, which includes geriatrics, orthopedics, cardiothoracic, general surgery and pediatrics. She have also worked with neonates and their families in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, offering parent training and support while the child was in the hospital and post-discharge.
In her career as a pediatric occupational therapist, Breanna has worked extensively with preschool and school-going aged children to work on attention, emotional regulation, as well as other motor and learning challenges. She has run groups that focus on handwriting, executive functions as well as social skills and is fluent in conducting therapy in English or Mandarin.
Being a mother of a preemie herself, Breanna enjoys working with babies who were born premature and/or with congenital conditions. She believes that intervention is a balance of encouraging independence and facilitating participation in desired and meaningful activities across the lifespan. Using child-led techniques, she is able to connect with the child and to build a deeper relationship with them. With a family-centred approach, Breanna strives to develop close relationships with the child and their parents so that the child’s capacities can be developed and challenged to the next level.
