    We cannot say enough good things about Effie, the ASL teacher, who was so engaged and effective with our 2 year old daughter from the very first session! Effie gladly included our whole family in the sessions! Her expertise and fantastic … More personality gave our daughter a way to communicate that she was so desperately seeking. The coordinators at Brooklyn Letters were so helpful and communicative…I would highly recommend their services!

    Aileen was INCREDIBLY helpful to us, both in assessing possible origins of my grandson's food aversions, as well as informing us of various available interventions to consider.
    I can’t thank you and Brooklyn Letters enough for connecting
    … More us with Aileen. In all our feeding therapy journey we have not gotten anything near the kind of benefit that we did from her. Her knowledge, professionalism, and responsiveness have put us on the path of progress with my grandson and has also made us feel genuinely well cared for.

    We were amazed with Allison! She met my son at 2 1/2 years old, not speaking much at all, and over a computer, and she was able to develop a bond and friendship, so much so that he would look forward to his weekly computer time with Allison. … More I was not sure how the speech therapy would go- but we are so happy that we tried it out and continued. It allowed my son to gain confidence in his speech, make a new friend :), and also give him the skills and a bit of understanding of how to shape his mouth or where to place his tongue to make the proper sounds. We were extremely happy with Allison- she was fantastic to work with.

    My sessions with Karen have been extremely helpful. My speech has improved tremendously. In fact, I just finished 2 hours of conducting interviews with a consulting client via MS Teams and I have an upcoming conference call. Both my … More neurologist and neurosurgeon remarked about how good my speech is. Much of the day it is perfect, although I still have some rough spots when I get tired or speak too quickly. One of my granddaughters is a speech pathology student at Ithaca College. She sat in on 2 sessions while she was home for winter break, and she was very impressed with Karen.

    We were delighted with Christie. First, and most importantly, our son made great strides under her guidance. So great, that we felt he no longer needed help! She was incredibly patient and kind with him and our son really responded to … More her. Christie was also great with me and my wife. She provided thorough and informative updates on our son's progress and which exercises she was using with him, so we could reinforce what she was teaching him. All in all, we had a fabulous experience with Christie and would highly recommend her.

    Isabel was WONDERFUL and our son absolutely adored her, and he is making great progress with his reading and writing.
  • 👉Manhattan,NYC Speech Therapy for Toddlers👈, Brooklyn Letters Lesley Duval ★★★★★ a year ago
    Theo was fantastic with our 4yo son. We were very worried that his progress would fall off when we had to switch to remote sessions, but Theo kept our son happy and engaged through the screen. Highly highly recommend!
  • 👉Manhattan,NYC Speech Therapy for Toddlers👈, Brooklyn Letters Samantha Packard ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    We've been working with Theo from Brooklyn Letters for close to 4 months now and the results are apparent; our daughter has vastly improved her speech in a relatively short amount of time. We make "Theo Day" a celebration … More in our house with pancakes for breakfast, and the enthusiasm is matched in the sessions. Theo is fun, patient, professional, and caring, and he gives us the tools to take the lessons beyond the session. Thank you Theo, and Brooklyn Letters, for helping our daughter express herself.
  • 👉Manhattan,NYC Speech Therapy for Toddlers👈, Brooklyn Letters Travis Ricca ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    I worked with Alina to enhance my pronunciation, tone, and pacing while communicating socially and in a work environment. She was great to work with and clear about goals and learning objectives. The improvement from day 1 has been tremendous! … More

    Cathy has been excellent with us and our son. We will sorely miss her. He has improved significantly with Cathy’s help. Cathy was a true partner with us, especially as we pursued additional help through our son’s school system.
  • 👉Manhattan,NYC Speech Therapy for Toddlers👈, Brooklyn Letters Kayne Elisabeth Wilk ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    We really loved working with Alina, she is so fantastic. Patient yet firm, and determined the best course of action very clearly and succintly for us. And it all transitioned so well to Zoom as well. I will definitely be back in touch for … More services for our other child after summer break!

    Vera was amazing! My 11 yo daughter made progress so quickly and really looked forward to her sessions. She was kept motivated and engaged.
  • 👉Manhattan,NYC Speech Therapy for Toddlers👈, Brooklyn Letters susie tofte ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    The work that Allison P. did with our daughter over the years has been invaluable to us. Our daughter had such a good relationship with Allison, and it allowed them to work really well together - even remotely these past 6 months. This … More year, Allison went above and beyond by helping us throughout the neuropsych eval we did, trying to re-open our daughter's IEP at her school, and eventually landing her at our chosen school. She was in contact with our daughter's teachers, with the neuropsychologist, and made herself available as a reference to speak on behalf of our daughter's learning differences.
    Allison stopped by our house last week to give our daughter cupcakes and say goodbye, and I literally cried with appreciation for what an amazing speech therapist she has been. She has been our daughter's biggest champion. The new families that she will work with this year are lucky to have her.

    Sydney was great! Our son was sad to end his sessions with her, which says a lot. We appreciated her honest assessment of his skill level, and he now has materials to self monitor and practice. Thank you!
  • 👉Manhattan,NYC Speech Therapy for Toddlers👈, Brooklyn Letters Kristin Ames ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    Our experience with Theo was terrific. Theo was great with my son. He developed a positive relationship with him based on sincerity, respect, trust and a deep personal connection. In their lessons, Theo was encouraging, creative and kind. … More He helped our son understand how to differentiate the sounds he made when he spoke, and gave him great exercises to practice every week between lessons. Our son was sorry to have the lessons come to an end, but recognized that Theo had helped him as much as possible and it was time for him to stop. Theo explained to him (and us) how to keep working to get the last 5%, and encouraged him to keep working on the exercises on his own. I have recommended Theo to another parent who noticed my son's improvement and inquired for her own son.
    We are all grateful to have gotten to know Theo, and we greatly appreciate all the work he did to help our son.

    "I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Michelle Macroy-Higgins. We are extremely pleased with her work with our daughter. I was so grateful for my daughter to have a speech therapist who is a researcher (specialty in late … More talkers), graduate professor and practitioner. Her expertise was clearly evident in our conversations and work with our daughter. She was very responsive to my questions and often sent articles and other materials about language development that I found helpful. Thankfully, my daughter's speech improved tremendously. Michelle developed such a warm relationship with my daughter. My daughter was always excited to see Michelle and would greet her at the door with a big hug. Lastly, I would add that Michelle always demonstrated empathy with me as a mother who was initially worried about her daughter's language development. I could go on and on about how pleased we were with Michelle's work."

    Theo is a wonderful Clinton Hill speech therapist. We were really pleased with him. Our son showed drastic improvement, not only in his speech but in his confidence.

    Alexa has been an enthusiastic, reliable, well prepared and caring teacher for our 6 year old daughter. She has been able to improve and increase our daughter's confidence lesson by lesson with patience and competence; through varied … More and productive didactic practice. Alexa has engaged our daughter in several activities that always kept her motivated and eager to learn literacy. My wife and I, both of us are educators, feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to observe Alexa's pedagogical skills. Alexa has had a big impact on our daughter literacy growth. Thank you Brooklyn Letters!

    We were absolutely DELIGHTED with Marsha's services. She was wonderful. We found her to be kind, fun, engaging, very knowledgeable. She provided us with clear instructions and additional written handouts each week. She engaged our … More son with different techniques and toys, and showed us how to use her techniques when we were interacting with him. I actually just texted her on Saturday - Our son finally said "more" - one of the target words we had been working on with her. It was a total joy to hear, and I had to share it with her - she wrote back immediately to congratulate us. I am so appreciative of her expertise, and wish we could have seen her for longer. I recommended her to another family in our neighborhood who is looking for a speech therapist.

Our Manhattan speech therapists can help your toddler who needs speech language therapy for expressive language, receptive language, oral motor, early childhood speech language delay, autism spectrum disorders (PDD, Aspergers), stuttering, feeding therapy, and AAC augmentative and alternative therapy. We also offer bilingual speech language therapy.

A language disorder or delay is a communication disorder that deals with difficulties in using and understanding spoken language.

A delay in language disorders or disorders that is not quickly addressed can cause children to fall behind in school. Research has shown that around 5% of pre-school-age children and 3% of grade school children have mixed receptive-expressive language disorders.

👉 Bilingual Speech Language Therapy
Statistics estimate that more than half of the world’s population is bilingual or can fluently speak both languages. According to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), bilingualism is a series of language skills.

Children learning multiple languages display certain traits when speaking and communicating that are unique to bilingualism (such as remaining silent when the other language is spoken during conversations). Most of the time, these features in speaking and communicating do not signify a language disorder.
A bilingual speech and language pathologist (SLP) must complete a speech-language evaluation to determine if a child’s speech or language problems are caused by acquiring a second language or are signs of a more serious issue.

👉 Oral Motor Speech Therapy
.Oral motor exercises that improve muscle tone, including blowing whistles, sucking straws, and chewing on chewy tubes, are supposedly practiced without working on actual sounds. They claim to improve general oral mouth muscle or tone, but there is no medical evidence that they improve speech. Yep, none! Our mouths are designed for many functions (breathing, drinking, chewing, swallowing, etc.), and the more you know about the scientific study of speech therapy, the more this makes sense.

👉 Early Childhood Speech-Language Delay
When we set up an initial consultation, we will assess your child’s speech abilities and determine if there are language delays. Our analysis will focus on where your child has difficulty manifesting their speech and language development. Identifying the root cause is essential for effective treatment. In addition to speech therapy, we provide language therapy for all ages.

Delays in early language development affect the acquisition of sounds, and words, transforming words, becoming a more communicative person, and learning about cognitive or linguistic concepts that are simple to recall, such as big vs. small, next to vs. under, some vs. all, or first vs. last.

👉 Autism Spectrum Disorders (PDD, Aspergers)
Autism Spectrum Disorder, or ASD, is estimated to affect one in 54 children in the United States alone, according to a 2020 finding by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring Network (ADDM).

To identify autism spectrum disorder, interdisciplinary collaboration is necessary involving a professional and a family member. Speech-language pathologists help assess ASD, along with doctors, pediatric neurologists, and developmental pediatricians.

👉 Stuttering
Stuttering is one of the most common communication disorders. An individual who stutters will have disruptions with certain characteristics in the state of speech. These interruptions usually consist of word repetitions (repeating words), prolonged sounds, difficulty with word retrieval (other than word finding), and muscle tension in the lungs, throat, or jaw. Tension builds in the lungs or throat, or jaw when blocks occur.

👉 Receptive Language
A language disorder, also known as a language delay, is a communication disorder characterized by difficulties in using and understanding spoken language. Language disorders are classified into two types: expressive and mixed expressive-receptive language disorders. These conditions can be inherited, developmental, or result from traumatic brain injuries. When a child or an individual has problems compared to peers listening and understanding age-appropriate vocabulary, longer sentences, and more complex or nuanced language, this could be a sign of receptive language issues. Students with language disorders will have reading comprehension problems when the structure and complexity of the written language exceed their ability to comprehend effectively what is expected by their age/grade.

👉 Listening Difficulties
Central auditory processing disorder (sound processing disorder), also known as auditory processing disorder, refers to errors in interpreting language or hearing verbal information in noisy conditions. The brain fails to translate the meaning of the person’s words and cannot distinguish distinct speech sounds. Children with CAPD typically struggle to remember—or remember correctly—what they hear.

👉 Feeding Therapy
Pediatric feeding disorders are characterized by complications in oral intake that are often caused by a child’s age. It is common for delays in eating, drinking, chewing, sucking, swallowing, and swallowing as well as food angioneurotic tendencies, food aversions, food refusal, and food texture and selectivity.

👉 AAC Augmentative and Alternative Therapy
AAC refers to an individual’s methods of expressing thoughts, ideas, or feelings without speaking. Some of the most basic examples of AAC are gestures, text-to-speech programs, or using a pencil and notepad to communicate.

AAC (Augmented and Alternative Communication) devices are used a great deal, including those with autism spectrum disorders, cerebral palsy, dysarthria, aphasia, and for children with severe speech-language delays.

If you seek language and speech therapy for toddlers and feeding services, you must work with one of our licensed speech-language therapists/pathologists.

To start services by our speech-language pathologists, we require a written justification from a licensed therapist or physician, regardless of his or her affiliation with Manhattan Letters. Documentation usually includes ICD-10 codes. We will also need new objectives. These objectives may come from recent reports or current professionals working with your child. If you still need to get these codes, we can help!
