    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.
  • Nassau County NY Speech Therapists and Pathologists, Brooklyn Letters Christine Weiher ★★★★★ a year ago
    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.

    Theo was wonderful and his work with my son has produced some progress. I am grateful for the services Theo provided.

    Highly recommend Jill. She is a total pleasure to work with. After a few months working with Jill, my son is reading above grade level and LOVES to read. Mission accomplished!

    Paige was great and we had been really happy with her. I would highly recommend her! I recommend Brooklyn Letters to whomever asks for a speech therapist.

    Isabel was WONDERFUL and our son absolutely adored her, and he is making great progress with his reading and writing.
  • Nassau County NY Speech Therapists and Pathologists, 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!
  • Nassau County NY Speech Therapists and Pathologists, 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.
  • Nassau County NY Speech Therapists and Pathologists, 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
  • Nassau County NY Speech Therapists and Pathologists, Brooklyn Letters Enrico Bermudez ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    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.
  • Nassau County NY Speech Therapists and Pathologists, 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.
  • Nassau County NY Speech Therapists and Pathologists, 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.
  • Nassau County NY Speech Therapists and Pathologists, Brooklyn Letters Alicia Perez-Katz ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    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!
  • Nassau County NY Speech Therapists and Pathologists, 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.

MEET OUR NASSAU COUNTY NY SPEECH THERAPIST, JESSICA
Jessica
Nassau County NY Speech Therapists and Pathologists, Brooklyn Letters
New York State Licensed Speech-Language Pathologist and a Certified Teacher of Students with Speech and Language Disabilities (TSSLD); SAT Instructor
Jessica is a bilingual speech-language pathologist with a postgraduate degree from Teachers College, Columbia University, and a master’s with the highest honors in Speech-Language Pathology from CUNY Queens College. She holds her Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), as well as her New York State License and Teacher of Students with Speech and Language Disabilities (TSSLD) Certification. As a speech-language pathologist in the NYC DOE public schools, Jessica believes in helping each unique student find their own path to success. Jessica employs multiple evidence-based teaching strategies to appeal to all learning styles (i.e., visual, verbal, tactile/kinesthetic) — and she also believes that everyone learns better when there’s room for some humor and fun!
Jessica specializes in instructing students from elementary through high school in the area of literacy (i.e., decoding/phonics, phonological awareness, phonemic awareness, fluency, prefixes, suffixes, reading comprehension, inferencing, and vocabulary). Jessica is currently trained in the following reading interventions: SPIRE Reading Intervention, Phonics for Reading by Anita Archer, Ph.D., Wilson Reading System Level 1, Equipped for Reading Success by David A. Kilpatrick, Ph.D., Heggerty Phonemic Awareness Curriculum, as well as Lively Letters and Sight Words You Can See.
Jessica’s breadth of experience allows her to succeed in treating several other areas across the field of speech-language therapy. As a speech-language pathologist who has worked with individuals in preschool, elementary school, middle school, high school and life skills programs, Jessica excels at working with students on their pragmatic language/social skills (i.e., for individuals on the Autism spectrum), attention abilities (i.e, individuals with ADD/ADHD or Executive Function Disorder), and other language-learning disabilities . Because Jessica also holds a certification in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), she is an ideal educator for students and families across multilingual backgrounds.
Additionally, Jessica has been teaching SAT reading, writing, and math to high school students for over a decade, through various programs as well as privately and remotely across Long Island. Because of Jessica’s unique skill set as both a speech-language pathologist and an SAT instructor, Jessica is uniquely qualified to teach executive functioning skills (i.e., planning, organizing, time management, study skills, attention abilities) so that stuedents can achieve their future educational endeavors. Jessica herself scored in the 99th percentile for the SATs, allowing her to attend the University of Pittsburgh on a Full Tuition Honors College Scholarship, from which she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts summa cum laude (with highest distinction) and Phi Beta Kappa (top 2% of the university).
Fun facts about Jessica: Jessica and her family toured 28 colleges before deciding to attend the University of Pittsburgh (Hail to Pitt!) When at Pitt, she studied abroad in Rome, which entailed eating pizza three to four times daily. A lifelong Italophile and Francophile, Jessica graduated with degrees in French and Italian Languages and Literatures. When she’s not teaching, Jessica can be found trying to locate New York’s closest replica of her Nonna’s pizza, while plotting her next transatlantic flight.

Jill
Nassau County NY Speech Therapists and Pathologists, Brooklyn Letters
M.S., CCC-SLP, TSSLD, SPEECH-LANGUAGE PATHOLOGIST

Jill has been working with students with learning differences for over 20 years. She is a licensed Speech Language Pathologist in the state of NY who holds her Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech and Hearing Association (ASHA) as well as her Teacher of Students with Speech and Language Disabilities (TSSLD) certificate from the New York Department of Education. She graduated with a B.S. in Human Development and Family Studies with a concentration in Child Development from the University of Rhode Island in 1998 and then continued her education at The University of Southern Connecticut where she earned her M.S. in Communication Disorders with a concentration in Speech-Language Pathology in 2002. She has also been training in multiple reading programs such as Wilson reading, Linda Mood Bell, and Lively Letters as well as basic prompt training for articulation.

Throughout her education she was employed in many settings with a wide range of students including substitute teaching, tutoring elementary school subjects to high school SAT’s, a counselor at a camp for children with autism, as well as a speech assistant in the Stamford Public Schools before they hired her full time out of graduate school. Once she completed her education, she has worked in a variety of settings from home care, public and private regular education, and special education preschools to middle schools, adult group homes, and remote learning. She is dedicated to her clients and builds lasting relationships with many of the families she has worked with, a great number who continue to keep her posted on their success to this day, long after they stopped needing her assistance. Her focus over the last 10 years has been with students from ages 3 to 15 in a regular education classroom who struggle with expressive and receptive language skills as well as phonological awareness and reading difficulties, from decoding to comprehension. Throughout her career, she has also worked with clients who have difficulty with articulation and phonological processes as well as verbal and non-verbal children with autism. In addition to language, Jill has a passion for math, using her language skills to help tackle word problems and sequencing strategies to assist in computation. Jill believes in using a blend of different modalities to help support her clients depending on what she finds they can benefit from when they are struggling. Her overall philosophy is to work as a team with her clients and family to discover a way to help her clients communicate and feel successful by giving them as many tools as possible. She then focuses on the ones that work best for them, as she understands we are all unique and there is not a one size fits all solution to learning differences.

When Jill is not working with her students you can find her meeting new people while traveling to new places near and far, on an adventurous road trip in her Jeep, watching her favorite sports teams, or spending time with her family and friends.
