Cassandra Wozniak, MS, CCC-SLP, Speech-Language Pathologist

Have you ever wondered how it is that others make conversation look so easy?  Have you felt confused by someone’s response to something you’ve said or done?  Have you ever offended someone and not understood why?  Functioning well in our social world requires more than a discrete set of skills – it requires one to think and evaluate social interactions flexibly – an understanding that context matters, that others have thoughts separate from our own and that for most, being accepted is more important than being “right.”

Learn the foundation for improved social interactions at home, in the community and at work, in a safe, supportive atmosphere.  Therapist’s treatment method relies heavily on Michelle Garcia Winner’s Social Thinking approach and incorporates direct teaching, discussion and role-playing, with an emphasis on functional and measurable improvement in clients’ daily lives.  Executive function skills treatment offered separately or in conjunction with the above treatment objectives as well (improved time management, planning, organization, etc.)  Most major insurance plans accepted.
