Brooklyn Summer Speech Language Therapy Speech Language Pathologist & Reading Remediation and Tutoring

Sunday, May 1st, 2011

Now is the time to contact us, if you are interested in summer speech language therapy & reading remediation services. Once summer arrives, we will plan our fall schedules.

If your child is currently receiving school speech language therapy services, we will connect with your school therapist and carry over his or her speech and language goals this summer.

If you are interested in literacy help, summer is a great time for your child to continue to develop and nurture their reading and writing skills. Particularly for children with literacy delays, don’t let your child’s literacy gap widen. Our language specialists work with a reading intervention teacher, local learning specialists, and a psychologist trained in evaluating reading and writing disorders. Our reading interventionist, Jo-Ann Kalb, is trained in Orton-Gillingham (PAF), Wilson Reading, Sounds in Motion (a phonemic awareness program that gets kids moving and learning consonant and vowel sounds) and Great Leaps.

Jo-Ann Kalb is a certified NY State and NYC Teacher and Reading Tutor. After a 30 year career teaching grades 1, 2 & 5 in Park Slope, including 10 years as a school librarian, she became a Reading Intervention teacher in 2003. She uses a combination of programs and strategies gleaned from her long professional career to work with students who struggle with reading, phonemic awareness or dyslexia. Jo-Ann is currently a Reading Intervention teacher at PS 10 in Park Slope and she provides group work as well as one on one tutoring.

Jo-Ann travels to your home!
Hours: Mon, Wed-Fri 3:30-7PM
Sat & Sun 10 AM-3 PM

Location: Park Slope, Windsor Terrace, Prospect Heights, Bay Ridge, Ditmas Park, Cobble Hill, Boerum Hill, Brooklyn Heights, Fort Greene

The Launching of Brooklyn Letters by Craig Selinger, M.S., Speech Language Pathologist

Thursday, July 15th, 2010

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

We will be expanding our speech, language, and literacy services to your home in Queens- Sunnyside, Woodside, Long Island City, Astoria, and we will be expanding our speech and language services to your home in Williamsburg, Greenpoint, Bushwick.
