M.S. CCC-SLP Speech and Language Therapist

Kay received her Master’s degree in Speech Language Pathology at the University of Wisconsin Madison in 2009. She is a certified member of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. Before moving to the United States for her studies Kay lived in Australia and Hong Kong. She speaks English and Cantonese and understands Mandarin.

Kay has worked in both public school and clinic settings. Her experience is in working with children from ages 3 to 16 in the areas of articulation, fluency, receptive and expressive language, apraxia and autism. Prior to returning to Hong Kong, her work consisted mostly of working with individuals with severe sensory and motor challenges that interfered with communication.

She believes in looking at children as a whole and therapy that is led by the interests and motivations of the 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!"
