Positive Behavior Supports Training


Before moving to Hong Kong, Kal worked for 20 years in the Child Development field. She started out her career teaching in Early Years (3 -5 year old’s). She then went on to her role as a Child Development Consultant working with children, families and professionals to support children with extra needs in home and group environments. As a Child Development Consultant, Kal supported Families and Educators to develop individual support plans for children that had additional support needs and that reflected the goals and priorities identified by their Families. She observed and monitored the Childs progress to determine if further assessments were required. Over the years Kal has worked with children of all ages. Her aim has always been to provide individual support plans based on Family centered philosophies highlighting goals and priorities identified by their
Families.

Kal graduated with a Diploma in ‘Early Childhood Education’ specializing in ‘Special Needs’ while studying in Vancouver, Canada. She went on to further her training in ‘Positive Behavioral Support’. This enabled her to work with Families, Educators, and Therapists to help determine strategies to ensure a child reached his/her potential and to help the child develop relationships that were successful and positive by understanding and replacing the negative behaviors. She also has experience developing and delivering training seminars/workshops for families, colleagues and childcare providers.

Throughout her career, Kal has worked as part of multi-disciplinary teams collaborating on inclusive strategies, bridging services that help support children of all abilities reach their potential. She is passionate about working closely with the team of professionals at SPOT to support a holistic approach for each child.

"When we first came to see Zara, our son M was not verbal. He was not regulated because he was unable to communicate his needs and wants to us. The first few sessions that we had with Zara was more of getting the trust of our son to play with her and be more comfortable with her. Each session with her was not just about helping our son to communciation to us at home. We were able to practice and extend that therapy sessions from Zara's office to our home because of the ideas and knowledge she has shared with us. After a few months of sessions with Zara, our son M can now verbally communicate his needs and wants to us and has expanded his vocabulary. Because of the trust and patience that Zara has shown to our son, our son is always looking forward to his sessions with her. We are happy with the progress of our son from being non verbal to a child who can now talk to us, read aloud and sing his nursery fhymes. Thank you Zara!"
