Event Details

The art of social communication is not just about talking. We look at each other, we take turns, we read facial expressions and body language, we listen to the tone of voice, we pay attention to what our communication partner is paying attention to. That is a lot to process all at once. How do children learn social communication which is essential to navigate the world and build lasting relationships?

We are honoured to have Ms. Chithra Kathiresan, founder of CONNECT & COMMUNICATE, to Debunk Myths about Social Communication. The objective of the session is to help parents understand the big picture around social, emotional regulation and executive functions.

Connect and Communicate was founded in 2013. It provides speech and language therapy services and specialises in Social Communication. The team is passionate about equipping clients, parents and professionals, across a diverse age range, with strategies to learn and integrate more effectively across different settings.

Chithra has worked as a Speech Language Therapist in Singapore for over 26 years. During this time she has worked in both adult and pediatrics within local hospitals and community settings. She left full-time employment as Head of Speech Therapy at KK Women's and Children's Hospital Rehabilitation Department in 2000, to care for her two children. She has been in private practice since. Chithra has a special interest in Autism Spectrum Disorders and neuro-developmental disorders of relating.
