    I cannot express how grateful and rewarding my experience with Brooklyn Letters has been. Her tutor Ms. Daria is so knowledgeable, amazing, kind and awesome. My daughter has made so much progress in Literacy and Math and it's all … More thanks to Ms. Daria. I know my daughter is sad that she can no longer work with Ms. Daria, as she looked forward to their sessions every week. Thank you again!
  • Avatar Natalie Levon ★★★★★ 4 months ago
    Nicole has been an amazing therapist!! She played a tremendous role in our daughter’s speech progress and overall development. She has come such a long way and we are so happy with the therapy she received!
  • Avatar Colin Peters ★★★★★ 6 months ago
    We could not be happier with the services Valerie provided! She is very thoughtful and knowledgeable and provided significant guidance to support our daughter's speech development outside of our scheduled sessions. She established … More a great working relationship with her, and she will definitely be missed! Your business model is amazing and it was an absolute pleasure working with Valerie. I've referred your organization and Valerie to the Executive Director of our daughter's school and friends/colleagues who are in need of speech therapy services.

    Christina was absolutely wonderful. She went out of her way to win my son over and it worked. He looked forward to her visits and his speech improved so much under her care. She was super flexible and it’s clear she truly cares. We adore … More Christina and we’re going to miss her. Almost sad he improved so much! She’s simply amazing and we can’t say enough how great she is. I would recommend her services to anyone and everyone, without hesitation. Thank you so much for connecting us with her!
  • Avatar Heather Liljengren ★★★★★ a year ago
    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!
  • Avatar Brigid Bower ★★★★★ 11 months ago
    Samantha Dalmas was fantastic! We saw her for a feeding therapy evaluation and while she doesn’t think my daughter needs more feeding therapy sessions at this time, but she gave me lots of tips to try. If my daughter's doctors want … More to see more progress at her next appointment, I wouldn’t hesitate to reach out to Samantha again.
  • Avatar Duygu Başaran ★★★★★ 11 months ago
    Brooklyn Letters was recommended to me through a friend's speech therapist friend in NJ. The articulation evaluation for my daughter went well. We were pleased with Kristin's services.
  • Avatar Kelley Peters-Patel ★★★★★ a year ago
    Melissa was wonderful. Our daughter warmed to her immediately and by the time she left, had already started "practicing" some of the techniques Melissa had shown her. I will not hesitate at all to reach out to Melissa again, should … More the need arise.
  • Avatar R Elmore ★★★★★ a year ago
    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.
  • Avatar Christine Weiher ★★★★★ 2 years 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.
  • Avatar Andrea Saffady ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    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.
  • Avatar Jacob B ★★★★★ 4 years ago
    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.
  • Avatar Jessica C ★★★★★ a year ago
    Theo was wonderful and his work with my son has produced some progress. I am grateful for the services Theo provided.
  • Avatar Melissa Stevens ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    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!
  • Avatar Demet Evren ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    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.
  • Avatar Jeizel Rosenthal ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    Isabel was WONDERFUL and our son absolutely adored her, and he is making great progress with his reading and writing.
  • Avatar Lesley Duval ★★★★★ 3 years 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!
  • Avatar Samantha Packard ★★★★★ 3 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.
  • Avatar Travis Ricca ★★★★★ 3 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
  • Avatar Enrico Bermudez ★★★★★ 3 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.
  • Avatar Kayne Elisabeth Wilk ★★★★★ 4 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!
  • Avatar Jen S ★★★★★ 4 years ago
    Vera was amazing! My 11 yo daughter made progress so quickly and really looked forward to her sessions. She was kept motivated and engaged.
  • Avatar susie tofte ★★★★★ 3 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.
  • Avatar Alicia Perez-Katz ★★★★★ 4 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!
  • Avatar Kristin Ames ★★★★★ 4 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.
  • Avatar Aisha Holder ★★★★★ 4 years ago
    "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."
  • Avatar Andrea Peartree ★★★★★ 4 years ago
    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.
  • Avatar mario costa ★★★★★ 4 years ago
    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!
  • Avatar Lily Alt ★★★★★ 4 years ago
    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.

Speech-Language Therapy

Speech-language therapy is used to help children and adults who have difficulty communicating. It can help those with speech disorders, such as stuttering, as well as those with language disorders, such as difficulty understanding or expressing language.

Speech Disorders

Speech disorders are communication disorders that involve the inability to produce speech sounds correctly or fluently or the inability to use normal prosody or intonation. They can range from mild to severe and can be caused by a variety of factors. Speech therapists in NYC specialize in diagnosing and treating speech disorders for children, adolescents, and adults. Our NYC speech therapy focuses on improving communication, developing language skills, and recognizing and treating underlying medical and emotional problems related to speech and language disorders.

Language Disorders

Language disorders affect a person’s ability to understand, use, and process language. They can involve difficulties with receptive language (understanding language) or expressive language (using language). Common types of language disorders include developmental language disorder, childhood apraxia of speech, and traumatic brain injury. Our NYC speech therapy centers are geared toward helping individuals of all ages overcome their language disorders. With experienced, certified speech-language pathologists, our NYC speech therapy is dedicated to helping individuals with language disorders achieve their goals and reach their full communication potential.

Feeding Disorders

Feeding disorders involve difficulty with the act of eating, including difficulties with the physical act of swallowing, how much food is consumed, and/or the type or texture of the food being eaten. These disorders can manifest in a variety of ways, such as food refusal, food selectivity, and/or difficulty with feeding transitions. Our NYC speech therapists specialize in providing effective therapy for feeding disorders. 

Our NYC speech therapists also provide education and support to parents and caregivers to assist them in helping their child to progress in their feeding goals. Children with feeding disorders can learn to feed safely and enjoy mealtime with the right treatment and support.

Who Needs Speech Therapy?

Speech therapists need a master’s degree in speech-language pathology. They must also have a Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology (CCC-SLP) from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). In addition, most states require speech therapists to be licensed by the state Board of Examiners for Speech Pathology and/or Audiology. New York State has its set of regulations and requirements for speech therapists practicing in the state. 

Speech therapy is beneficial to anyone who has difficulty speaking and communicating effectively. It can help those with a variety of different conditions, including those with language-based learning disabilities, autism spectrum disorder, Down syndrome, stuttering, or difficulty pronouncing certain sounds. Additionally, it can help those who have difficulty forming words, speaking clearly, or using proper grammar. NYC Speech therapy can also benefit those with a stroke, traumatic brain injury, or other neurological conditions affecting speech.

Process for Finding a Qualified Speech Therapist in NYC

When considering NYC speech therapy services, it is important to do your research and make sure you are selecting the right therapist for you. Start by researching the qualifications and certifications of speech therapists in NYC. Look into the experience level of each therapist and read reviews about them. Make sure the therapist you select is licensed to practice in New York City.

It is recommended to schedule a free consultation with the therapist to get a feel for their approach and techniques. During your consultation, make sure to ask questions about the therapist’s areas of expertise and their history of successful cases. If you know anyone who has used the services of a speech therapist in NYC, ask for referrals from family and friends.

Before scheduling an appointment, make sure to confirm the therapist’s availability and location. Doing your research and finding the right speech therapist in New York City will help you get the most effective treatment.

What Happens During Speech Therapy?

NYC speech therapy is a great way to help those with speech and language difficulties improve their communication skills. During speech therapy sessions, a speech pathologist will assess the individual’s communication abilities and develop a plan to help them learn to express themselves effectively. Depending on the individual’s needs, the speech pathologists may work on building pronunciation skills, articulation, improving language comprehension, and using language appropriately in different contexts.

The speech pathologist may also provide counseling and support to the individual and their family to help them better understand the communication issue and the treatment plan. Speech therapy sessions may include activities such as playing games, reading stories, or using pictures and other visual aids to help the individual better understand the material. With the help of a qualified speech pathologist, individuals can gain the skills they need to communicate effectively with others.

How Long Do You Need Speech Therapy?

The length of your speech therapy depends on the assessment of your speech therapist and the severity of your speech disorder. Generally, speech therapy can range from a few weeks to several months, depending on the type of disorder and the individual’s progress. It is important to note that some speech disorders require a lifetime of therapy.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Amy to other families. We had a terrific experience. My twin boys Max and Teddy (3 in October) just finished eight months of speech therapy with Amy. Amy was terrific. The boys progressed so much over the past eight months that they were discharged far sooner than I could have anticipated. They also loved her visits, which was really just an added bonus. I also very much appreciated that Amy was sensitive to our needs and discharged the boys when she knew they were ready. I’m sure that’s a tough call to make but in tighter financial times it’s good to know that someone will be candid about the need for her services. That meant a lot.

Amanda is a joy to have in our house and I have complete trust in her and her abilities. I highly recommend her! Amanda has worked with our 3-year-old son for the past 7 months on his speech. He has made such progress in those months and it is due to Amanda’s careful attention and instruction. She has such a gentle way with him while still getting her message across. Our little one has even started self-correcting his speech errors. Amanda is fun, upbeat, and creative and always has a unique lesson plan that incorporates our son’s favorite activities. She is also very good at giving us feedback and keeping us up to date with what they are doing in class, as well as pointing out helpful things we can do on our own time.

Bilingual Expert! We had Suzanne, speech therapist, perform a mini-evaluation on our son and we had such a good experience with her that I feel compelled to share my impressions. At first, I must admit I was a bit apprehensive about having someone come into our home to evaluate our son. He is very active and, like any toddler, can be extremely suspicious of strangers so I wasn’t sure how this was going to work. When Suzanne entered our apartment with her big bag of toys, my partner and I were immediately put at ease. She has a warm yet confident way about her and she obviously loves working with children, which is the key to my son’s heart. Additionally, Suzanne is very knowledgeable about speech-language pathology with young children, particularly with bilingual children. Suzanne is very professional and methodical. She played with our son while speaking with us and answering all of our questions. She was a pro. The experience with Suzanne was better than I could have imagined.
