Once you have identified your specific needs and the type of SLP NYC you want, you can begin your search. A great way to start is to ask for referrals from family, friends, and healthcare providers. Additionally, you can search online for SLP NYC providers in your area. Finally, it is important to research their experience, qualifications, and reputation before selecting the right SLP NYC for you.
Who are Speech Language Pathologists?
Speech-language pathologists are highly-trained professionals who specialize in diagnosing, assessing, and treating communication disorders. They help individuals of all ages improve their communication skills, from those with language disorders to those with speech impediments, to those with issues related to hearing loss. At the same time, they also provide support and advice to families and caregivers to ensure the individual receives the best possible care. With their help, individuals can develop the communication skills needed to interact with others, improving their quality of life.
What Do SLPs Do?
Speech-language pathologists (SLPs) specialize in helping individuals with communication disorders, cognitive-communication disorders, and feeding disorders.

Craig and all the tutors and therapists are a delight to deal with, intelligent, knowledgeable, effective, responsible. Highly recommended. Our son is now 9 1/2 years old, attends a mainstream private school in Brooklyn where we live. We have utilized Brooklyn Letters at three different times for our son. Our son has speech apraxia. First, at 2 years old, our son did speech therapy twice a week for a year, with Craig himself. Later at 6 years old, I contacted Craig again about a reading tutor because although our son could read, his school at the time taught reading at a different pace than many schools and we knew we wanted to transfer. Our son made huge progress the full year we had the reading tutor and has since continued great progress at his new school, where he tests two grades ahead in reading. We wanted to supplement the speech therapy we get at school so last year and this year we once again hired Brooklyn Letters (Rebecca) to provide private speech therapy. With all these tutors or therapists, our son has had a lot of fun and he looks forward to the sessions. I have always recommended Brooklyn Letters to neighbors, friends, and classmates who need these services. Craig and all the tutors and therapists are a delight to deal with, intelligent, knowledgeable, effective, responsible. Highly recommended.
I am so grateful to her. Amy is a fantastic speech therapist, reading strategist, and confidence-builder! My now-7-year-old son was having difficulty with enunciation, and, perhaps relatedly, hesitating to try reading aloud. I was concerned about taking him to a speech therapist because I did not want to make him (more) self-conscious. A year ago, Craig at Brooklyn Letters recommended Amy, and the whole family has come to rely on her. My 7-year old’s speech is much clearer than it was, and Amy has taught him a bunch of different strategies to try if he is unsure how to make a sound or read a word, which greatly reinforced his reading learning at school. Amy saw immediately how to win my shy son’s confidence (ask him to explain how to play chess to her), and targeted her strategies to his strengths (numbers and sports!) so that he could work on the new skills while feeling good about himself. My son looks forward to Amy’s weekly visits immensely (it is also really helpful that she comes to our house!). Amy recently told me that she thought he was ready to graduate from their sessions, and I immediately felt like this would be a real loss for him and for me as a parent because I have so come to value Amy’s advice. So I persuaded her to work with him once a week on Spanish (Amy is bi-lingual), which he has just begun at school, and on homework strategies. I am so grateful to her.
Craig, you come so highly respected among parents and educators. I am a teacher and everybody knows you are the go-to place for private speech services! Cari’s work with my son has been transformative. When she started working with Adam four months ago he was basically non-verbal, jargoning all day and echolalic. She helped us make very quick adjustments to the way we address him and how we can get him to respond. We started seeing change instantly. Now he is better able to express his needs (so fewer tantrums!) and he even tells us some crazy stories. Cari was always on time, creative, patient, and prepared. Her communication to Adam’s teachers helped ensure that everybody was on the same page, so we were all consistent. Sadly, we are moving to Boston soon. We hope we can consult with Cari when the need arises. We completely understand there is a fee for her services whether in person or digital (Cari is worth it!). We can never thank her enough for all that she has done. Thank you so much for putting us in touch with her.
– Nadia, mother to Adam
