Wanling believes that forging meaningful relationships is important to every individual, and underpinning that is communication. She hopes that through intervention, she can help children explore ways to better communicate their needs and thoughts. She also believes that parents and caregivers are invaluable partners in the process and enjoys learning with, and from each family. 

Wanling began her career as a teacher in a special school in 2004. Her four-year stint as a special educator helped her gain a clearer understanding of the children’s needs. Keen to better support the individuals she worked with, she went on to pursue her Masters in Speech & Language Pathology at the National University of Singapore. After graduation, Wanling had the opportunity to work with individuals with autism spectrum disorder, hearing loss, intellectual disability, feeding difficulties, speech and language disorders. She also has experience working in different settings such as mainstream schools, early intervention centres and special schools.
