Florence Oong

Brief info

Florence "stumbled" into the autism community through volunteer work at the Pathlight School cafe, after 20+ years in the private sector, with her last job as a Trainer and New Talent Development. She subsequently joined the Pathlight School as the Head of Vocational Track. In the 4 years at Pathlight School, Florence oversaw several portfolios, which included placement of students for work, the internship programme at Pathlight and eCampus (for online learning).

Florence wants to channel her expertise and experiences towards improving the lives of people with special needs. She believes by focusing on abilities and appropriate accommodation, people with special needs can make useful contributions and lead meaningful lives.
