About Us

Alana Fichtelberg Alana Fichtelberg, M.A., CCC-SLP  is a speech/language pathologist for almost 25 years. She is trained in PROMPT(R) (Levels I and II) and Social Thinking® - Clinical Trained Level I. Alana was an adjunct professor/clinical supervisor at Montclair State University and Seton Hall University.  In addition to her private practice, she worked in the public schools for eight years, including schools specializing in children with autism.  She received a grant from the National Foundation for the Improvement of Education and has a large scholarship grant from a local parent autism group. 

 Alana has been in private practice full-time for the last 11 years in New Jersey.  She has recently moved down to Florida where she continues to work privately with students/adults with a wide range of communication difficulties from 12 months of age through adulthood, with a particular concentration on children diagnosed with apraxia, aphasia, autism spectrum disorders, and social learning challenges/comprehension difficulties. 

Social Thinking®  is the social framework that Alana endorses and uses with all her students -- whether seen in groups or individually, working on articulation or language. She gives presentations throughout New Jersey and Florida for parent groups, professionals, and school districts about the social groups she runs for children with sociallearning challenges.  These groups are using much of the works of Michelle Garcia Winner, along with the works of others.  Alana has two entries in Michelle Garcia Winner’s“Unthinkables” book, Social Town Citizens Discover 82 New Unthinkables for Superflex to Outsmart, released in August 2012.
