Tracy is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA), and the first Qualified Behavior Analyst (QBA) in Singapore. Her passion to help individuals with special needs started from a young age. While studying her BSc in Psychology, and MSc in Applied Behavioral Analysis, from Bangor University (United Kingdom, Wales), Tracy took the opportunity to intern and volunteer with children (with and without special needs) who faced academic challenges; utilizing ABA techniques to aid them. During her summer holidays back in Singapore, she also volunteered with various schools and organizations working with children with special needs in bid to learn how these organizations worked with and helped these individuals with special needs.
Tracy has worked in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) since 2015. She has worked in Singapore and Dubai, with clients ranging from 2 years to 24 years old. She believes in the importance of individualizing programs for her clients based on their needs, and has worked with her clients on skills ranging from requesting, to imitation, to vocational skills, and etc., according to their needs. Additionally, Tracy has experience (1) working in multidisciplinary settings with psychologists, speech therapists, occupational therapists, and physiotherapists to aid clients in a holistic manner; (2) providing home-based, school-based, and center-based therapy and supervision; and (3) training therapists, teachers, and parents on ABA.
Tracy is passionate about disseminating information on how ABA can be adapted and conducted in different countries, cultures, and contexts. She strongly believes that ABA should be individualized in order to help children and adolescents with developmental disabilities reach their full potential; better preparing them for any of life’s challenges which may come their way.
