Maura Amentas, M.S., CCC-SLP, Speech Language Pathologist
Maura is a licensed speech-language pathologist and a Brooklyn native! She earned a BA in English Literature at the University of Pennsylvania, from which she graduated summa cum laude. After graduating, Maura worked briefly in law, followed by a research position at Columbia University. While working, she completed her Master’s of Science in Speech Language Pathology at Columbia, from which she received several scholarships and worked as a Teaching Assistant for two graduate level courses. Maura has vast experience with pediatric populations of all ages, ranging from infant to young adult, and she has passionately pursued a career in the NYC public schools. She currently works as a speech pathologist at P.S. 261 in Boerum Hill and completed her clinical school practicum at P.S. 321 right here in Park Slope! She also has experience in hospital settings, clinics, and District 75 schools. Maura is adept at treating children with receptive and expressive language deficits, auditory processing difficulties, literacy issues, phonological disorders, and pragmatic language issues. She is particularly skilled at addressing speech-language issues as they relate to and impact classroom and academic performance while keeping therapy sessions engaging and motivating for the child. Additional areas of interest and expertise include articulation therapy (not just lisps!), narrative skill development, reading comprehension and verbal reasoning abilities. Maura is a firm believer in evidenced-based therapies to promote a child’s speech and language abilities in functional and resonant ways. She emphasizes the importance not only of the therapist-child relationship but also of her relationship to parents and she is always happy to answer questions and allay concerns along the way!

My name is Craig Selinger, and I am a speech language pathologist, also known as a speech therapist, who lives in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Starting in September, I will work full-time in the area; no more back and forth Manhattan commuting. My services include child speech, language, and feeding therapy and language remediation, e.g. reading and writing.
I am very excited to launch Brooklyn Letters! Seven months of steady work on the website and now it is live. Brooklyn Letters will be a dynamic forum: updated blogs, articles, and resources. We want to create services based upon your needs. Here are some future ideas/plans:
Dr. Annette Hernandez and I will soon be adding more professionals to our team.
Every member of the Brooklyn Letters team will contribute to our interdisciplinary blog. Check-in monthly for new entries.
Other ideas about the blog:
1) Contacting professors/researchers to make research more accessible to the public.
2) Extending our interdisciplinary blog to other pediatric professionals in the New York City area. If you would like to contribute to our blog, please email me your name, phone number, area of expertise, and the topic you would like to write about. I am limiting blog entries to one page and one per month. Each month will have a different professional contributor.
Did I miss an important resource? Please email me the link, and I will consider adding it.
We have a FREE Brooklyn (Park Slope and nearby neighborhoods) private business and local pediatric professional (for those offering unique services) directory.
If you are interested in small group services (3 children) please fill out this form and email it back to me. I teach language learning, literacy, and social skills to small groups. Creating these groups is cumbersome due to the difficultly coordinating schedules and matching learning needs. My goal is to organize compatible small learning groups.
If you are a pediatric professional interested in home-based services in the Park Slope and/or and nearby communities, please email me your résumé.
How can we improve this site? Email me your ideas.
I am very excited to see how Brooklyn Letters will help contribute to Brooklyn, and watch it help parents from around the world learn more about their child’s development.
Many thanks to Brent and Teresa (my amazing website designers), Amy Way (photographer), the families that allowed me to be photographed with their children, Evan, Noreen, Chino, and Maryam. It was a team effort and I appreciate everyone’s important contributions and endeavors!
We are now offering speech, language, and feeding services/therapy in Bay Ridge, Dyker Park and Dyker Heights, and Bensonhurst! If you are interested in Kristi, a speech language pathologist, coming to your home, contact Craig at email@example.com
