Accent Reduction Modification Speech Therapy, Brooklyn Letters

Brittney is a speech-language pathologist with a master’s degree from the University of Texas at Austin, where she received specialized training in the areas of language-based learning disabilities, bilingual language development (Spanish-English), and fluency (stuttering).Following graduation, Brittney moved back to New York and has been working for the New York City Department of Education with students from pre-K to high school.

Brittney specializes in working with school-aged students with speech and language and executive functioning disorders and differences. She is passionate about designing and implementing research-based lessons that help students build the underlying organizational and language skills necessary to become proficient readers and writers. Brittney targets skills at any and all levels of language in which students need support, whether it’s learning the academic vocabulary associated with a specific form of writing, or learning how to comprehend complex sentences in a novel.  Brittney works with students to help them identify their unique writing behaviors and adjust their process to include the tools and technology that will make writing a fun and engaging learning activity. For example, many students with SLD and ADD benefit from orally rehearsing their sentences prior to writing them down, and learning new spelling patterns within the context of their reading and writing classwork.

Brittney partnered with a SLP researcher to demonstrate the effectiveness of written language intervention she designed and implemented at her school. Results revealed that the writing intervention helped students with SLD and ADD improve their writing productivity and spelling accuracy. Brittney regularly provides workshops for administrators, supervisors, parents, teachers and speech therapists regarding speech and language disorders, written language intervention, and creating an inclusive environment for students with communication disorders and differences.  She also has experience treating adults with Accent Modification.
