Wai Chi Wong, Gigi

MSc
BCBA
BCBA

She's always been enthusiastic to learn more about children development whilst completing her BSc Psychology degree at University College London. Upon graduation, she went on to further her knowledge with a MSc Degree in Clinical Application of Psychology at University of Warwick. During this time, she worked as an assistant Clinical Psychologist on the Primary Mental Health Team in the NHS in the UK that focused on early intervention and prevention for mild mental health issues such as anxiety and depression and children with emerging special education profiles such as ASD and ADHD.

She has dedicated herself to the ABA field having undergone intensive training as an ABA therapist and seeing it's effectiveness for many children with different profiles. She has accumulated over 1500+ supervised service hours for working with children with different levels of functioning from as young as 18 months to 16 years old and completed BACB approved courses spanning over 2 years to earn her Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) certification. Thus, she has a good knowledge of a child's development milestones. Gigi is experienced in providing 1 to 1 and group based intervention for children with ASD, learning disabilities, developmental delay, language delay, anxiety , aggression and social emotional issues. This has been conducted in a variety of settings including home-based therapy, centre-based, community-based for generalisation and transfer of skills to real-life situations and school-based as a shadow teacher. She was honored to have served as a shadow teacher and faded her services for a number of students that have successfully fully integrated into the mainstream school. ​

Her enthusiasm is fuelled from children's laughter during play and learning and seeing the smallest achievements made by the children. Her goal is to be able to serve more families with individualised ABA programs. This led her to take up a more leadership role in order to train therapist, educate parents and mentor students who are eager to work with children using ABA therapy.

FAQ

You Ask - I Answer

  • How many lessons a week?

    Research recommendations suggest ABA therapy should be intensive (20 - 40 weekly hours), individualised and comprehensive to target a wide range of skills and therapy should be conducted in the form of one-to-one format before transitioning to groups or other natural settings (Maurice, Green & Foxx, 2001). However, with a child that attends school, or other training, it is understandably hard to achieve this. At ABLE, we are flexible to work around you and your child’s schedule to achieve significant outcomes from our ABA therapy.
  • Who is ABA therapy for? Do I need a diagnosis for ABA therapy?

    Using ABA therapy, we aim to work with children as young as 18 months to adolescents to teach functional life skills for engaging independently in activities of daily living. ABA therapy can work for ANYONE who’s willing to learn new skills. It is suitable for children who have (or suspected to have) behavioral, social-emotional issues, and/or with special learning needs: Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Asperger’s Syndrome, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Anxiety disorder, Developmental Delay, Language delay etc. Children that come to ABLE do not need to have a diagnosis for training. We work with any individuals that want to acquire and maintaining skills, and improving behaviors. Primarily the focus will be to equip and improve children’s social, play, language, academic, self-management skills in a one therapist to one student ratio or in small groups.
  • When Should I Start ABA Therapy?

    Since signs for ASD or other problem behaviours come to light at around 18 months but assessments may not be done until at least 2-3 years old. It doesn't matter whether a child has a diagnosis or not but it is recommended to start ABA therapy as early as possible. It also means that the child has fewer opportunities and time for problematic behaviours to develop and they can learn the appropriate behaviours from the start.

    Vietze & Laz (2018) provided ABA therapy to 106 toddlers under 40 months, with an average child receiving a mean number of 290 hours of 1:1 instruction (approximately 1 year of therapy with 5 hours a week). When they reassessed their performance, they showed statistically significant improvements across all areas of functioning including IQ, communication, motor, socio-emotional, adaptive behaviours as well as a reduction in ASD symptoms and barriers to learning. Other studies have shown that children who received ABA therapy before 4 years of age make greater improvement compared with children older than 4 years that received ABA. (Lovaas & Smith, 1988; Turner & Stone, 2007).
Parenting Tips

Give child a high-five, they go far in life

Share and Turn Take

“Sharing is caring” is something we would love to teach our young children. However, many children refuse to share, because children at young age are at the stage of learning how to satisfy their own need first. Then how can we teach them this concept? Instead of forcing their to give away what is supposed to be theirs, let’s teach them to take turns!

Tolerance to surgical masks

Flu season is now at its peak and recent cases of coronavirus in Hong Kong are worrying. It is imperative that we wear a mask for protection. However many parents are troubled by their child's inappropriate use masks or refusal to wear masks. ABLE therapists would like to share some strategies in teaching personal hygiene and build tolerance in wearing masks.

Work O.T or on Saturday?Giving choices

I choose to work over time. Giving options for children to choose from motivates them to follow through with it. Even if both choices are horrible.
