In recent years, autism spectrum disorders (ASD) have gained a great deal of attention for the rising prevalence of the diagnosis. This has created a greater level of awareness in our community, but also has lead to some misunderstandings about what ASD is. ASD is a developmental disability that affects three areas of functioning; these are language/communication, social functioning, and behavior.
If you are a Park Slope or Windsor Terrace parent concerned about your young child’s speech, language, and/or communication development, you have come to the right place! Brooklyn Letters will add one of the top New York City speech language therapists to our team. Meet Dr. Michelle MacRoy-Higgins, Assistant Professor at Hunter College and South Slope resident. Her clinical and research interests include speech language delays in young children and she is a seasoned therapist!
I am very excited to launch Brooklyn Letters! Here are some future ideas/plans:
We have a FREE Park Slope and/or Windsor Terrace private business and local pediatric professional (for those offering unique services) directory.
