    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!

    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 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!

    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.

    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.
  • 👉SEIT Teacher in NYC👈, Brooklyn Letters Kayne Elisabeth Wilk ★★★★★ 2 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.

    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!
  • 👉SEIT Teacher in NYC👈, 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.

Considering Hiring a SEIT Teacher NYC?

👉SEIT Teacher in NYC👈, Brooklyn Letters

It is common to see children with learning and attention issues and their parents struggling to keep up with their academic demands. School districts and government agencies can assist with diagnosis, intervention, alterations, and accommodations, but there are many instances where a child would require additional assistance in and out of the classroom. That is where a special education itinerant teacher (SEIT) would be beneficial.

What is a SEIT?

A SEIT is a special education professional who offers one-on-one support to students with learning disabilities, behavioral problems, or special education requirements. The SEIT teacher focuses on pre-academic skills, social interaction, and behavior skills to assist the child in the home and/or school setting. The child’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP) is implemented in early childhood programs and at home as part of the SEIT team. The SEIT collaborates with other relevant service providers to implement and plan for the student’s goals.

A SEIT Teacher NYC must provide SEIT programs. It is common for children with hearing impairments to be served by teachers certified in special education or speech and hearing, but children with visual disabilities may require an expert in the blind or visually impaired, or those with hearing impairments may require a specialist in deaf education.

A  SEIT is a specially educated itinerant teacher employed by an organization that is licensed by the New York State Education Department to provide special education instruction to children with disabilities in preschools.

Primary General Functions of SEITs:

  • providing direct services- provided to help students become more aware of what is happening in the classroom and improve their cognitive and academic skills
  • providing indirect services- provided to determine the best way to support a child with a learning disability

Roles and Responsibilities of a SEIT:

  • provide educational programs in a preschool classroom or the child’s home 
  • help teachers or families create an environment that encourages learning and development in school or at home
  • improve social skills, behavior skills, or pre-academic skills to prepare for school or home success
  • work together with general education teachers and other academic interdisciplinary team members to fulfill the IEP requirements
  • conduct classroom and instructional management for disturbed high school students
  •  to help students with learning disabilities achieve as much academic success as possible, given their disabilities
  • assist the student in achieving their goals by adhering to their Individualized Education Program (IEP)
  • develop, manage, and monitor the child’s behavior management program
  • collaborate with preschool directors and teachers
  • coordinate the child’s educational programs with teachers, therapists, and parents
  • guide and support the child’s family  
  • provide indirect/consultation services to the student’s general education professionals to support the student’s progress toward IEP goals
  • work together with other service providers to support students’ learning
  • help students develop the self-regulation and social and emotional skills required to successfully interact with peers and adults
  • complete progress reports and annual reports, and contribute to the development of the IEP

Questions to Ask a SEIT?

  • What worked well today? What difficulties did he/she have? 
  • What new skills did you work on together?
  • What can I do to help my child become more independent in a particular skill)?

Who Receives SEIT Services?

The DOE provides preschool special education services to children aged 3 to 5. Children who are recognized by the Committee on Preschool Special Education as having a disability are eligible for free preschool special education services.

The CPSE is in charge of coordinating the special education process for preschool children. The CPSE team will develop an Individualized Education Program (IEP) if the child is determined eligible for special education services.

Top Qualities To Consider When Hiring a SEIT

  • ability to communicate effectively in the classroom
  • ability to adapt to any situation
  • open to improving personally and professionally whenever an opportunity arises
  • can empathize with students with special needs
  • Patient
  • Creative
  • highly organized

What is an IEP?

An IEP lays out a child’s abilities and what DOE services are needed to meet his or her educational requirements. A telephone or in-person teacher from the child’s early childhood program should attend all IEP meetings to provide information about how the child performs in class.

How can Brooklyn Letters help?

If a child is classified as a student with a disability, the school, Board of Education, or the child’s therapist may recommend the services of a SEIT. The DOE may provide these services for students, but parents themselves also have the option of seeking the help of a private SEIT.

At Brooklyn Letters, our New York City private SEITs provide support services. These services are not reimbursable by the DOE or by RSAs. Parents pay the SEIT directly.
