About

Bernard is the founder of Dinosaur Speech Therapy.

A recipient of the Singapore General Hospital (SGH) scholarship, Bernard 
started his professional career at SGH after graduating from NUS. He has since worked across a variety of settings including community hospitals, private hospitals, as well as in an international school. He has experience working with various different conditions including children with speech and language delays/disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Down's Syndrome, hearing impairment, neurological disorders/impairments, Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS), amongst others.

With the experience of handling mixed caseloads of both adults and paediatric populations throughout his career, Bernard is comfortable with the assessment and treatment of both, though he has chosen to specialise in the paediatric population. Bernard maintains a special interest in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
Bernard is fluent in English, Mandarin and Hokkien.
