I first found College of Allied Educators when I was struggling to teach my seven year old daughter reading. I did a Certificate course and it opened the doors to the world of Special Needs. As I became more aware of people with different learning disablities and special needs through the course and the attachments I was sent to, I became passionate about working with children with special needs. As I struggled with helping my daughter (who was later diagnosed to have dyslexia) to cope with school, I wanted to help other children like her. I then made a decision to leave my banking career of 22 years and become a special needs officer with MOE.
Now I work in a Secondary school that includes children with various learning and behavioural disorders. I want to thank College of Allied Educators for being the first stepping stone in my new career which makes my life a more meaningful one.
As the result of my last module is out, I would like to send this mail of compliment and thanks for Andrea Mayrhofer.
Andrea is simply the best teacher I ever had! She is caring, patience and when she taught, she taught with her heart and passion.
What really impressed me most is that when she taught us, she taught not just with the objective of imparting skills and knowledge. Instead she taught with the purpose of making us counsellors.
And above all, she has a concern for the students that is way above what is expected of in teachers.
Presently, I am providing counselling service inside prison and what she has taught has allowed me to help my clients effectively.
She is such an inspiration to me and I wish her all that is good and best.
I am an expatriate living in Singapore. As a qualified Primary Teacher, I believe the above course has enhanced my understanding of learning disorders and how to assist children with special needs in their learning. The module on Child Psychology and Speech and Language Development furthered my knowledge and understanding of how children develop and further heightened my teaching abilities. The Counselling course helped me facilitate relationships both personally and professionally.
The course was flexible and efficiently run by Catherine Low, the Programme Manager. On the other hand, the College staff well-informed, helpful and supportive.
I recently completed the ‘Diploma in Learning Disorder Management and Child Psychology’ from the College of Allied Educators, Singapore. Through this course I learned better critical thinking skills and gained a valuable grasp of the core subjects. This knowledge helped me tremendously in better understanding my own children, as well as provided me a new career direction.
College of Allied Educators has therefore my highest recommendation.
I am a student from College of Allied Educators (Singapore), and have just completed my diploma course in Learning Disorders Management & Child Psychology. I would without a doubt, recommend this course to anyone who wishes to explore or specialize in the area of children with learning difficulties.
This course has equipped me with the essential knowledge to better understand these groups of children through the interactive lessons and experiential attachments.
I would like to say a big Thank You to you for the support you have given, in helping me to complete the course and getting my diploma.
I appreciate the flexibility offered by your institution, to enable working adults and parents like myself in learning more about Child Psychology, working with children with Special Needs, Counseling tactics as well as Speech and Language Development. The faculty and admin staff have been very supportive in rendering assistance to the students.
I would also like to extend a very big Thank You to the lecturers for the superb deliverance of the lectures. A special thanks to lecturers like Mr Bimal Rai and Mr Laurence Ho, who have taught with much passion in the respective subjects, such that lectures are never boring.
I really appreciate them sharing their experiences and making the subjects so comprehensive. They have definitely been an inspiration to me.
Your institution is definitely one which I would recommend to friends.
Thank you and wishing you all a Merry Christmas and Happy 2012!!
I would like to say a Big thank you to all of you. I started my journey with you and what i am now and have learnt so far is all thanks to the Lecturers and Staff.
You guys had been a great support for the past two and half years. The lecturers were so patient and out-going. Lecturers like Bimal Rai, Lawrence Ho, Sunitha Rai and Richard and many more had made great impact in my life. They conducted the lessons with so much life and humour that working adults like me never felt tired or worn out. They were so nice to share their personal experiences and strategies for better understanding.
And of course not forgetting the admin staff, Catherine, Danny and Kathy. They were awesome. They were more like a family and helped me throughout the years.
Im really going to miss you guys. I would definitely recommend anyone out there to join College of Allied Educators for a better future in this sector. Despite being graduated, i still have personal connection with formerly known as Linguistic Council. I really wish all of you great success and prosperity.
No one who achieves success does so without acknowledging the help of others. The wise and confident acknowledge this help with gratitude.
Thank You once again!
Being trained as a teacher for mainstream school, I wanted to specialise in Special Needs Education so that I have a better understanding of Children’s behaviour and learning style. I am absolutely confident that I made the right choice when I selected College of Allied Educators.
The teachers at this institute are passionate,dedicated and above all helpful. Any questions or concerns have always been promptly addressed.
The faculty Nancy, Catherine, Kathy, Danny and James are very supportive and approachable and are more than willing to assist any time I need them. The time-to-time survey for their quest to improve their service is indeed commendable.
The flexible programs that are offered have allowed me the opportunity to further my education and I am glad that I decided to choose College of Allied Educators.
A short note to express my thank yous for your time and superb deliverance of the respective topics, and sharing your experiences with the class. I had always look forward to those Wednesday night lectures. At lunch time today, I have returned to collect my Diploma. Holding my Diploma in my hand now and looking at the results, it is worth those weekends coming into the office to study and work on the assignments given (I do not have a PC at home and with the blessings of a very good boss who allows me to utilize my office PC) + those Wednesday nights.
The joy felt is overwhelming and a wonderful sense of satisfaction + meeting all my acquaintances at College of Allied Educators. Also a big thank you to a great team of staff @ CAE too. The journey does not end here and will always aim to pursue further. My sincere gratitude must be sent as without all of you, I will not achieve this Diploma.
Best wishes and kindest regards,Friday, July 9, 2010
It is a great feeling to know that I have completed the course. Thinking back, I have just started in April with lots of enthusiasm but now after 6 months of good stress, its all over.
I had so much fun at School of Lingusitic, it felt different from other schools and it made me feel warm and welcome with its special personal touch. Lecturers were very knowledgeable and unselfish in sharing their personal experiences. The course has given me an eye opener to a lot of things around me.
The Language class has showed me the common mistakes I have made in my daily life which needs improvement. Counselling helps me to learn to listen better to others and speak when necessary. Learning disability has given me an eye opener and taught me the importance of being patient. It was a wonderful experience at St Clare and OT clinic.
I would like to specially thank Mr. Prakash for his interesting lessons in Child Psychology. I have gained a lot of knowledge during the class and it has helped me to understand and bond with my teenage son better.
Lastly, I would like to thank Catherine, Kathy and Danny for being so helpful and patient with me. I will miss your sweet smiles, ladies and Danny’s delicious biscuits!
Take care and all the best! Regards,
