About the founder.
Nur Smits pursued her degree in Occupational Therapy at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands.
When she was in the Netherlands, she worked closely with teachers in the schools, assessing the needs of the children and implementing interventions to support their learning at schools. Now in Singapore, she does Occupational Therapy in the different levels of the society.
On the individual level, she works with children and their families closely. Part of her work includes identifying the child’s strengths and weaknesses using assessments and performing learning intervention programmes that are appropriate for each individual to work on their goals. She has experience in helping children with conditions such as Autism, Dyspraxia, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) / Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Developmental Delay, Sensory Integration Disorder, Visual Processing Challenges and children with handwriting challenges.
On the organisational level, she works closely with schools assessing what the needs of the children are and support the children and the teachers with the appropriate learning strategies.
On the societal level, she is active in promoting public awareness on positive teaching strategies and in building an inclusive society.
The experience of working in different countries and with different groups of people has broadened her skills in helping children. Working as an Occupational Therapist for children is her passion and it continues to bring her lots of joy.
