It only takes a moment to…

…know if you are the right hire for the job…

…know if you want someone on your team

…know if you are a powerhouse or powerless

…know if someone likes you

…know if you are open or rigid

…know if you are empathetic

…know if you are a ‘team player’

…know if you are manageable

…know if you are sincere

…know if you are fun to “hang” with

…know if you’ll have my back

…know if you are earnest/honest

…know if you are going to be difficult

…know if you need to be ‘managed’

…know if you are high or low on EQ

…know if you have a good disposition or not

Approach & Social Cognitive/Language Testing

We teach flexibility to our students and maintain that flexibility throughout our classes and therapeutic planning. Each child is unique and requires his/her own unique set of assessment tools and therapy approaches.

Our process entails extensive parent interviewing, face-to-face pre-screening in some cases, assessment, remediation, parent training and ongoing parent conferences. Our assessment process is extensive and includes a combination of the aforementioned including standardized testing as well as assessing individual strengths & weaknesses as a tool to help in treatment planning.

Our work doesn't just end at the session; we make visits for observations in the home and with allied professionals outside The Talking Playhouse family in order to see your child in a variety of real life settings. This includes working with the teachers and speech & language therapists at school.

For our social pragmatic language groups, each therapist creates a custom approach depending upon the profiles of students attending the group. They pull from the leading experts in the field such as Dr. Barry Prizant (Yale University) founder of the SCERTS program for Autism, The Hanen Group approach, Michelle Garcia Winner of Social Thinking and more.
