Jai has been receiving intensive and individualized speech-language services 15 hours per week since 10/11/10. Long term goal areas include: receptive and expressive language skills (grammar, vocabulary, basic concepts, following directions, asking and answering questions), literacy skills, feeding skills, and social language skills.
Initial summary of skills (10/11/10)
When Jai first began receiving services, he presented with significant delays in receptive and expressive language skills, literacy, and feeding skills. He also demonstrated limited attention to structured tasks and table-top activities. Jai spoke in short sentences (often 1-2 words), demonstrated grammatical and word-order errors. He had difficulty using language to request, protest, and ask for help. Jai did not independently use language to comment on objects or action during play. He answered “what” and “what happening” questions with approximately 70% accuracy. He had more difficulty with response to “who”, “when”, “where”, and “why” questions. Jai demonstrated delays in understanding of concepts (spatial, number, time) and followed 1-step directions approximately 50-60% of the time. Jai was at the pre-literacy stage of reading development and recognized 8/26 letters in the alphabet and 4 sound/symbol combinations. He had difficulty with auditory discrimination of sounds (e.g. /p/ vs /b/, /m/ vs /n/).
Jai has made steady and significant progress on his speech-language, literacy, and feeding goals since he began therapy. Jai learns best given repetition of information, opportunities for practice, and through the use of hands-on materials and visual prompts. Jai demonstrates good retention of information once he has learned it. He responds well to verbal models and prompts.
Receptive/Expressive Language: In terms of receptive and expressive language skills, Jai now speaks in sentences up to 5-6 words in length with varying levels of complexity. He continues to produce grammatical errors, but responds well to verbal prompts to correct error sentences and retains information/skills gained during structured tasks that target appropriate grammatical usage. Grammatical skills targeted include regular and irregular past tense verbs, plurals, and subject+verb agreement (“He is writing”; “They are running”). Jai uses appropriate question forms to request activities, objects, or toys. He is working to use appropriate phrases and sentences to protest or indicate that he does not like something. Jai asks for help 8/10 opportunities and he is working to use more specific language when asking for help e.g. rather than saying, “Help me please,” Jai instead will say, “Please help me move these books to the table”. Jai now uses language to comment during play. He has increased the scope, complexity, and flexibility of play schemes and engages in age-appropriate pretend play. He enjoys playing with pirates, legos, play-doh, turn-taking games, and computer or ipod games. Jai has increased his understanding of spatial concepts during structured tasks and identifies in, out, under, on, next to/beside, behind, and in front with 90-100% accuracy. He continues to work on expressively using these locatives. He also continues to work on increasing his knowledge of opposites, number concepts, and temporal concepts. Jai follows 1-step directions with 100% accuracy and 2-step directions with 70-75% accuracy. Jai’s vocabulary continues to increase on a daily basis. He has been and continues to be exposed to new, different, and exciting culture, people, and experiences here in New York. He has learned about the changing seasons, weather, Halloween, Thanksgiving, ice skating, etc. Jai has increased his categorization skills and can identify and talk about how/why pictures, objects, and/or words can go together. Categories include: food, colors, shapes, numbers, vehicles, tools, animals, and furniture. Jai has increased his ability to accurately answer a variety of “wh” question forms. During structured activities and when given verbal and visual prompts, Jai answers “what” questions with 90% accuracy, “where” questions with 80% accuracy, “who” and “when” questions with 70% accuracy, and “why” and “how” questions with approximately 50-60% accuracy. He has increased his ability to answer all question forms with more accuracy during less structured activities and conversational exchanges.
Literacy: Jai now identifies 21/26 letters of the alphabet (all except h, w, g, q, y) and demonstrates knowledge of sound/symbol awareness of these letters. He auditorily discriminates between /p/-/b/ and /m/-/n/ with 90-100% accuracy. Jai has been introduced to rhyming words: cat, hat, fat, sat, mat, bat, pat, rat and can, fan, man, pan, tan, van. He is able to read these words with 80% accuracy and spell them with 70% accuracy during structured tasks. Jai enjoys books and shows a desire to read and learn new information through reading. He appears to have acquired a good foundation and knowledge base to develop literacy skills. He makes attempts to sound out new words and is more confident in his skills. Each week Jai shows significant improvement in this area.
Impressions and Recommendations
Jai has made amazing gains since beginning therapy 1 month ago. He has set the foundation for learning and literacy development. He has increased his abilities in the following areas: attention for structured tasks and for sustained focus, e.g. to discriminate sounds, confidence, willingness to try new and/or difficult tasks, retention of information, retrieval of information, carryover of skills, and independence in demonstration of knowledge and skills. He responds well to the clinician’s models and prompts. He shows excellent potential for continued learning and skill development.

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!
