SLP Speech Pathology Masters, ADHD, Chinese

As a young Chinese woman who is full of life and a very hard worker, I am sure that I want to have a long professional life that is full of both children and older people since both are an integral part of my personality and professional vision for making my most entire contribution to society, especially here in America, and perhaps also back in the country in which I was raised, Taiwan, at least at some point. I look forward to practicing professionally in both my languages, Mandarin Chinese and English.

UX is my first choice for Graduate School in Human Development and Early Childhood Disorders not only because I am currently finishing my undergraduate studies in Speech and Language Pathology at UXX and very much love my school and its location, but also because of the sheer uniqueness and thoroughgoing, interdisciplinary nature of your program, focused on precisely the part of human nature that I wish to study.

A student from China is learning everything she needs to know, not just about SLP issues and foundations but also about Dallas, which serves as a microcosm in which to also learn as much as I can about the diversity of American culture and society. Every professor in our SLP Department at UXX is exceptionally wealthy in knowledge. I keenly look forward to studying with some of them again on a graduate level once accepted into your Masters's Program in Human Development and Early Childhood Disorders. I appreciate your first-rate facilities at UXX and the numerous opportunities to do research and perform practicum. As an international student, I feel strongly that continuing as a graduate student at the same university where I finished my undergraduate studies will allow me to take full advantage of the time that I have invested in a social network of professional connections, many based in Dallas, which will also help me to excel.

My younger brother has ADHD and a learning/reading disorder. Thus, I am already knowledgeable about many of the issues involved with childhood disorders and developmental challenges. I appreciate the vast effort and patience required by family members who I see as having an integral role and instrumental importance in meeting the unique needs of children with disabilities/disorders.

I look forward to a highly in-depth study of why and how some parents take a very long time to realize that their child is different from their peers. I hope to contribute to increasingly early detections, when treatments realize their best results, providing the adequate foundation for the most entire and most satisfying lifestyle possible for the individual as they mature first to adolescence and then adulthood.

I have always loved working with children. Since high school, I have volunteered as a religious teacher at our church. I spend time with kids every weekend, reading Bible stories, leading hymns, singing, and playing with the children. I also tutor elementary school students in my community, helping them with their homework, especially math problems. After I came to the USA for college, I worked as a teaching assistant at an afterschool Chinese learning center, helping to manage the class and teach students math and Chinese. Now, I am working at a dental office as a patient coordinator working with all ages, from infants only a few months old to some patients who are very elderly and I thrive on this diversity. I take special pride in my ability to calm and play with the children in the waiting room, some of whom are awaiting treatment.  I see every child as a gift from God. Thus, it will be a special honor for me to devote my life to supporting families as they face the challenge of having special children, helping those children and their families to live the fullest and most enriching lives possible.
