Teresa Jones, M.S. CCC-SLP

Speech-Language Pathologist

Teresa joined the Building Blocks Therapy, LLC team in August 2011. She had been working with children aged 3-5 years old at the Capital Area Intermediate Unit (CAIU) since 2001, in a variety of preschool and daycare settings. Therapy has focused on a variety of communication needs: articulation, receptive and expressive language, fluency and social/pragmatic language needs, particularly with children on the Autism Spectrum. She loves helping her students improve their specific communication needs so that they may improve the quality of their social relationships with adults and peers and feel the success of increased communication. Previously, Teresa had worked with elementary through high school aged children in a variety of school districts, before having her own children and then making the switch to Early Intervention.

 

She received her Masters of Science in Speech Pathology at Bloomsburg University of PA and her Bachelor of Science in Speech Pathology and Audiology at Indiana University of PA. Teresa attends continuing education seminars/workshops on an ongoing basis, to enhance therapy focus and ideas for her students.

 

Teresa doesn’t have a specific favorite toy, but recently was introduced to the Build and Play Mechanic Set. It is a great durable toy which allows children to use a (safe plastic children’s) battery operated drill/screwdriver to make and repair a submarine, helicopter, boat, train, racing car and airplane.
