Sherrianne's Biography | 1:1 ABA Therapy Program — Autism Partnership Singapore

“I love that I am doing something that really helps our children & families! It brings me joy when I learn that the child has hit a developmental milestone or is able to go to school”. - Sherrianne Cheah (MSc ABA), Site Director at Autism Partnership Singapore

With over 25 years of experience with working with children of varying special needs, Sherrianne shares about her experiences, passion and what it takes to be an educator. One of her most memorable cases is working with a child who would make a fuss if his food did not arrive immediately in a restaurant. After spending some time working with him, he eventually managed to sit and wait calmly for his food to arrive. She highlighted that these are the little things that we so often take for granted, but may mean so to families with children with special needs. 👪
