Playmobil seems to be a popular tool with therapists and psychologists, particularly those who work with young children.

Here's another site which might be of interest:

When our eldest boy had speech therapy, (he's totally deaf in one ear and has the other ear aided) the therapist used Playmobil figures and animals in the sessions, we also found that using Playmobil at home encouraged him to talk and act out things he wanted us to understand.
In fact we first got interested in Playmobil because of this  :yippee:

So I now have a box of klickies in my office- 
Since most of the kids I work with have a mild form of autism which impacts their social learning, the addition of a visual prop has been really helpful in increasing their ability to communicate.
Don't know why I didn't think of this before...
