Just want to say, Craig and his team are amazing! Great listeners, smart, and sensitive, and respectful of children. We could not be happier with our daughter’s progress and her new confidence. Of all the therapists/professionals we’ve met, both through EI and private, I trust the folks at Brooklyn Letters the most. I highly recommend Suzanne as a speech therapist. My daughter is very sensitive and prone to anxiety; Suzanne was both in tune with Rose’s emotions and skilled at keeping the sessions focused. To me, this is no small feat with a 3-year-old. Suzanne always came prepared with a game to play, a project (such as arts and crafts, cooking) or a book, or a combination of these activities. She worked with Rose on a variety of language issues, as well as making choices, taking turns, listening. She used a visual (picture) schedule each time which seemed to help Rose feel more organized and in control. This was before Rose was in school, and it was with Suzanne that Rose learned to read a schedule. In addition, Suzanne was exceptional at communicating with us as parents. She actually listened to our concerns and addressed them head-on. We have had our share of therapists, and have found that this is not something you can take for granted. Suzanne is attentive, sympathetic, and dedicated, fun, kind, and knowledgeable. She challenges the child at the right level not too easy, not too hard. I highly, highly recommend Suzanne.

My daughter loved working with Ericka and she looked forward to reading/playing with her every week. Ana’s speech has improved a great deal over the year she has spent working with her. She learned to pronounce her words and speak slowly. Ericka was great at making the lessons fun and encouraging her to ask questions. We are so happy we found Brooklyn Letters! We talked about revisiting Ericka if we feel she may need some extra help in the future.
One of the best speech therapists on the market! He is professional, incredible with children, and the results speak for themselves. Craig worked with my daughter for less than six months and she went from having a vocabulary of very few words to hundreds in that short time period. She gained confidence in herself, developed vocabulary and better pronunciation, and really had fun while learning. Craig always took the time to speak with us regarding concerns and had excellent advice and guidance. I highly recommend Craig and can’t thank him enough for the incredible work he did with our daughter.
