Meet The Staff

I have worked more than 10 years at BOLD.  Starting from a medical background with little experience working with children, I joined BOLD because it was, and still is, my career objective to help people in need while, at the same time, improving myself. I like working here because I enjoy teaching the children.

After studying Digital Art & Design at KDU University College, I joined BOLD in 2012 as full-time staff at our Seberang Jaya Centre. In the mornings I am with ACS Early Intervention Program and in the afternoons I coordinate BOLD’s Focus on Literacy Program. I really enjoy working and playing with children in these two programs. This experience has taught me so much about the skills and patience needed to help Children with Special Needs.

After 20 years of NGO work in early childhood intervention, I am now in private practice. But I remain BOLD’s Consultant for its Inclusive Support Program which provides support and training for preschool and primary school teachers to include Children with Special Needs in mainstream classrooms. One of my most meaningful projects with BOLD is the production of “We are Friends”, a set of children’s books for teachers to use in promoting empathy and acceptance of Children with Special Needs.

I love reading, so helping children to learn to read is my passion in life. This led me to join BOLD in 2005 to start the Focus on Literacy Program. My first challenge was to train a team to help children in a SJKT learn to read Tamil, a language I did not know! Such challenges in the years I worked for BOLD pushed me to work harder to learn more about different strategies to help children who have difficulties learning to read. Currently, I divide my time between my own private practice and continuing to help BOLD to develop its Focus on Literacy Program.

My special needs son gave me the insight to dive deep into Learning Disabilities & Special Education. It is now my goal to combine my range of experiences and abilities to be a compassionate and enthusiastic teacher for the benefit of our children. I am truly glad to be part of BOLD as it allows me to make a positive contribution to the community. 

Our Dedicated Team

 

BOLD is able to reach more than 100 children every year through the efforts of the many dedicated team members who teach and play with the children several times a week. Some join us for short projects, others have stayed with us for many years. Our current team members are all conducting Focus on Literacy teaching sessions as other intervention programs are still on hold due to Covid constraints.
