She earned her Master of Social Work Degree in 2016 from The University of Pittsburgh and became certified as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in 2023. After graduating Pittsburgh Caitlyn worked as an early intervention therapist at the Center for Autism in Philadelphia providing play therapy to toddlers.  She then worked as a school counselor for 4 years at a specialized school for students aged 5-21 experiencing social, emotional, behavioral, and educational challenges, as well as developmental delays. Caitlyn regularly participates in continuing education related to a range of topics, including autism, play therapy, social/emotional development in toddlers and children, toddler/children mental health.


Caitlyn is passionate in teaching children, especially toddlers, emotional regulation, frustration tolerance, and appropriate social/communication skills. She believes every caregiver can learn how to be the place of calm for their child and provide their child with the necessary skills to handle challenging emotions, even through the most difficult of tantrums. She is passionate about helping to give the caregivers the tools they need, as well as providing toddlers with appropriate coping strategies to help develop a stronger connection and positive relationship within the family unit and with others. Caitlyn loves being creative with intervention strategies and finding playful ways for children to appropriately engage in everyday routines and meet treatment goals. Caitlyn is fluent in sign language and has used sign language with her 2 daughters starting at age 6 months. She loves using sign language in early intervention and providing children with a functional way to request their wants and needs.


It is hard for Caitlyn to narrow down her favorite toys. However, she likes role play toys (i.e. kitchen toys) and dolls. These toys provide many opportunities for children to develop and practice social skills, emotions, imitation, and communication. Also, playing with these toys often create opportunities for them to play with another person furthering social development, as well as encouraging creativity in the pretend play.

Teresa Jones, MS 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 favorite toy to use in therapy with children, but does feel as though creative, manipulative play allows for lots of opportunities for language use. Peers and adults can model new vocabulary and expanded utterances as they engage in interactions. Coloring and painting activities, playing with playdough and helping to cook/bake provide experiences full of new vocabulary and many chances to model actions and language. The tools for these activities may many times already be in families’ homes.
