Greetings! CHEERS (cheer-us) is a team of Educational Psychologist, Counsellors, Educational Therapists and Academic Specialists based in Singapore.
CHEERS is unique as we combine educational psychology in our academic intervention services!
We work with:
A) Children and teenagers with learning, behavioural or emotional challenges in Preschools, Primary and Secondary Schools.
B) Pupils with no medical or special needs diagnosis but struggle in their academic subjects or school environment.
C) Pupils who require a comprehensive psychological report to understand their cognitive and learning profile.
As a child specialist centre, we also liaise closely with hospital personnels, school personnels, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, and parents.
At CHEERS, we pride ourselves for teaching skills that can be measured and transferable to our client’s school and home environments.
