She is trained in standardized psycho-educational testing for school readiness assessments, diagnostic assessments such as Autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and specific learning disorders such as dyslexia, dyscalculia and dysgraphia. She is also adept in dynamic assessments to assess children’s learning potentials and conducting mental capacity assessment under the Assisted Deputyship Application Program.

Jia Hui’s clinical interests lie in narrative therapy and children with social-emotional concerns. She advocates that all clients, regardless of their abilities, have the potential to excel and live dignified lives. She is an accredited Cool Kids Anxiety Program facilitator, is trained in Narrative Therapy, Applied Suicide Intervention Skills (ASIST), Marschak Interaction Model Group Theraplay, Level One Theraplay, and Trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

  • Emotional Regulation
  • Depression and Self-Harm

In addition, she is experienced in training teachers, parents and had been providing supervision for interventionists on administering the Brigance screening tool for preschool children under the Developmental Support Plus (DS-Plus) program.

Her recent interest focuses on attachment-based therapeutic work and conducting process groups. She presented a study on the lived experiences of neuro-typical siblings living with a sibling with special needs at the Asian Conference on Psychology & the Behavioral Sciences (ACP 2020). In addition, she launched a collective narrative e-book on the mental well-being of children for a social service organization.
