Ms. Carol as my son calls her is very knowledgeable, patient & kind. We’ve been going to her once a week for almost a year now and she has provided us with much help and care. She figured out that my son did not have a delay, but an oral apraxia. She has made videos to help me show my son how to say certain sounds and will take the time to help me understand. I certainly recommend Carol to anyone. My son looks forward to seeing her every week.

"Theory of Mind"

By Carol Krakower


Theory of MindLearning Social Skills from the Bottom Up is a therapy plan for children with high functioning autism/Asperger’s, published by Linguisystems and written by Carol Krakower.

Theory of Mind is developing the ability to take the perspective of others.  Recently published work on mirror neurons tells us that we do not think through this.    Your child will learn to experience what others can see, what others can know, what others can believe.

Other social skills programs teach your child to follow social rules.  This program is different.  At Cornerstone Speech & Language, we believe that your child has to understand Theory of Mind first.  We call it bottom-up social skills.  We use games, childhood stories, costumes and dramatic play.  It’s fun.  It works.  It can make a world of difference for your child.

I brought my son to Cornerstone because of his tongue thrust, which was pushing his teeth forward. My son went for about 12 sessions at Cornerstone before his tongue thrust was corrected. Carol was very friendly and knowledgeable about the issue. I received before and after videos after he finished speech therapy, and was surprised to see how much progress he had made.
