The therapists are very engaging and provide good feedback to me. I am able to see results even though Yong Le only started the sessions a few weeks ago.

Most importantly, Franics loves Rachel – he developed a great rapport with her so he trusts her and enjoys his time with her. There’s also a range of things she’s done with him and they are all great. I would recommend this place to a friend/family.
Ms Jacqui helped him develop social skills, better emotional regulation, improved his functions and made him look forward to weekly interactions. I would recommend Total Communication to a friend or family.

My daughter Zoe has been going to lessons at Total Communication for just over a year. Over the course of this time, I have seen Zoe grow in confidence with her writing abilities and an increase in her level of understanding and use of complex language skills, something she previously struggled with. She felt very comfortable to share and seek help from the Therapist assigned to her. She would often bringing in pieces of work she had from school to discuss them together. Zoe learned vital skills like mind mapping which helped her to organise her thoughts and plan her work better. The therapist’s vast experience and knowledge in this field coupled with her friendly, helpful nature has really managed to draw Zoe out of her shell and enabled her to develop critical thinking skills and build up her self-confidence. I would have no hesitation in recommending Total Communication to anyone that may need help in this area.

I knew my now 3 year old son from the age of 18 months had an issue with his speech development and I had taken him for various assessments with no clear diagnosis. I commenced speech therapy at the age of 2 with a local SLP but was very unsatisfied with them on various fronts. After carrying out my own intense research I suspected Childhood Apraxia of Speech CAS and I visited Prudence who was confidently able to confirm a diagnosis. Anyone who has a child with CAS will know that research shows early diagnosis and intervention is critical. Whilst I was highly disappointed with all the other professionals lack of ability to see the markers of CAS in my son, this in hindsight has been a blessing. Prudence Is a talented therapist who, unlike many other providers, has amazing skills to engage my son in different and creative tasks during the session whilst remaining firm with him to ensure the goals are achieved. Prudence consistently makes the time to provide me with clear and concise feedback on his progress.”

Another year passes of joy to reflect and let you know that you hold a special place in our hearts and thoughts. The impact you’ve had on our lives will never be forgotten. You were instrumental in making Sam the person he is today and tomorrow! It is from your dedication, commitment and passion that led Sam to maximize his true potential. Sam was, for many reasons asked to do an assessment at school as he seems to be excelling beyond expectations. To then understand from this that has an IQ of 134, considered gifted, we in many ways boil down to your efforts.

Kavan has been attending Total Communication for almost a year and a half now under Ms Prudence. He has shown so much improvement in his speech and social interaction. The therapists are so skilled and patient in their scaffolding and guiding of Kavan in his understanding of non-verbal cues and translating all these into constructive social interaction with his peers. I could see him gain confidence and become a more effective communicator with his peers in the playground and in social situations. I am heartened to see Kavan’s continued progress in Total Communication.”

We have seen Julian trying his best to vocalize words at home when we practice with him. Jacqueline is open to getting our views on what Julian likes especially singing / humming songs and she tries this during her sessions to get Julian to enjoy the sessions. She was able to engage with him during sessions and also advised on how her method can be better reinforced at home which was comprehensive and easy to practice.

My teenage boy came to the day programme as we had been referred by a Psychologist. We were from India and he had earlier received treatment for autism, mainly by speech and language therapists and occupational therapists. It was in Singapore at Total Communication that we found that things were starting to move in a positive way. We had to discard a lot of the old ways that were taught to me as a parent – and adopt new strategies. I found for the first time that my boy was really thinking – whereas previously, he would answer yes to everything that was asked of him. The therapists were caring and very eager to see him thrive. Every time we visited India, our relatives would comment that they now see Krishna as now a different boy. Krishna is back in India now with my husband’s relocation – and is in a programme that allows him to move forward in a functional way. Our family now has new hopes that there is a future for him. We want Krishna to participate in life like everyone else and now we can see that happening.

My child enjoys going to Total Communication sessions because the teachers are friendly and approachable. His therapists were Karli, Jacqui and Rachel. I can see improvements like him being more conscientious of his grammar and sentences. The different zones of feeling E.g Red, Green, Blue, Yellow helps him to control his anger.

My son has shown considerable improvement since he started therapy at Total Communication. The occupational and speech therapists work closely with him, focusing on his areas of weakness and monitoring his progress. The centre as a whole is pleasant and the staff and therapists are helpful and friendly. I will certainly recommend Total Communication to those who may need speech and occupational therapy.

My son Yik Tuck, aged 16, has been attending Total Communication Therapy for over a year. Being on the spectrum, academic, social and communication skills proves a challenge to him. Ever since he is here, I see great improvement in terms of academic and communication ability. He was so happy when he saw his scores in his English paper and simply couldn't wait to share his joy with his therapists. Now that he is doing his vacation job in service industry, he can even communicate comfortably with the customers and his peers. Yik Tuck is always looking forward to his sessions at Total and I am very glad to see this level of enthusiasm. I am really grateful to all the therapists and staff, who have supported him and developed great rapport with him."

It has been almost a year ever since my daughter started therapy with Total Communication Therapy Pte Ltd, and as parents, we have truly seen the progress she has made. The guidance and patience of the nurturing therapists has helped my child to be engaged in the process of learning, and what’s more valuable is that the centre’s regular contact with my child’s school allowed for effective communication between her therapists and teachers, where the therapists were able to be promptly aware of my child’s learning progress in school.
