Name: Michelle Tham
Education: Graduated from the University of Queensland in Australia with top Honours in Speech Language pathology and is on the Dean’s list. She holds 12 certificates from the College of Teachers, UK.
Michelle is the Principal and Founder of Leapfrogs children’s therapy centre. She started out at KK women’s and children’s hospital before starting her own practice in 2003. She is a Clinical supervisor and external council member supporting the Masters of Speech Pathology Programme in the National University of Singapore and has been involved in leading several volunteer training projects with the Singapore International Foundation. She was part of Lien Foundation’s 2019 leadership programme to visit Harvard University’s Centre on the Developing child.
Having worked with more than 6,000 children over close to 20 years, Michelle knows that each child needs to be supported by strong fundamentals for them to achieve their highest potential, and an academic foundation alone is not enough. She finds great delight in understanding how each little human being is unique and is constantly fuelled by their small but meaningful achievements and inspired by their absorbent minds.
