Andrea S.

M.A., CCC-SLP, SPEECH LANGUAGE PATHOLOGIST
Online Speech Language Therapist, Brooklyn Letters

Andrea is a licensed Speech-Language Pathologist with over 20 years of experience. She holds a B.A. in Religion from Oberlin College and an M.A. in Speech-Language Pathology, begun at the University of Pittsburgh, and completed at Queens College-QUNY following a family move to NYC.

Andrea’s foray into early language began as a volunteer with toddlers on a kibbutz in Israel. Back in the United States, she began her professional career as a preschool teacher and was motivated by her love of child development to pursue coursework in early childhood education at Carlow College and then to begin her M.A. in speech/language pathology at the University of Pittsburgh. Her research experience there led to a life-long commitment to evidence-based practice. Once in the NYC public schools, it was a smooth slide from language development to reading development. Andrea has studied the Orton Gillingham approach through courses completed with the Reading Reform Foundation, Wilson, and The Spalding Method.

Although a school-based therapist, Andrea loves being with children at home where they are most comfortable and where she can see and use what they are most interested in. She embraces children wholly and takes great delight in them!

As a specialist, she is attuned to points of struggle and challenge and then finding ways to build from strength to strength. She relies on parents and teachers for information about their concerns, their observations, and situational demands.

Andrea’s areas of expertise include late talkers, phonemic awareness and reading/decoding, reading comprehension, expressive language organization, and writing.
