Shiva graduated from University of Buffalo with a Bachelor’s in Communication. Having worked with Singapore Brain Development Centre for the past 8 years, she has been exposed invariably to work with children of different types of special needs. She loves the challenges that come with training children with a different spectrum of disorders as well as giving constructive advice to their parents.

This programme follows a pragmatic approach and helps children in our centre to express themselves both in written and verbal forms.
