    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    Vera was amazing! My 11 yo daughter made progress so quickly and really looked forward to her sessions. She was kept motivated and engaged.
  • Google review, Brooklyn Letters susie tofte ★★★★★ a year 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.

    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!
  • Google review, Brooklyn Letters Jacob B ★★★★★ 3 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.
  • Google review, 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."

    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.

HOW CAN WE HELP:

SPEECH LANGUAGE THERAPISTS

Speech-language pathologists (or speech and language therapists, speech therapists, or simply, SLPs) prevent, assess, diagnose, and treat speech, language, cognitive-communication, social communication, voice, and swallowing disorders. Working with individuals of all ages—from babies to adults—SLPs conduct therapy sessions on a one-on-one basis and provide information for families, support groups, and the general public.

In many cases, SLPs work with other healthcare professionals to provide referrals and assessments. Speech-language pathologists treat a wide range of communication delays and disorders. These include:

  • Speech Disorders – These can occur when an individual has difficulty producing speech sounds and putting them together to form intelligible words. Speech disorders include articulation or phonological disorders, apraxia of speech, and dysarthria.
  • Language – Difficulties in understanding what was heard or read (receptive language) or using words to share thoughts and feelings (expressive language) may point to a language disorder. This can manifest in either spoken or written expression and may involve form (phonology, morphology, and syntax), content (semantics), and use (pragmatics) of language.
  • Voice or Resonance – Voice or resonance disorders refer to problems in how one’s voice sounds. One may sound hoarse, lose voice easily, talk through the nose or too loudly, or be unable to make sounds.
  • Social Communication – This refers to the social use of verbal and nonverbal communication. This includes how one communicates socially, how well one follows conversation rules and story-telling (the aspect of expressive language called narratives), tells jokes, and how one speaks with different people in varied situations.
  • Cognitive-Communication – Someone with a cognitive-communication disorder may exhibit problems with organization, memory, attention, problem-solving, and other thinking skills. This can be a result of traumatic brain injury, a stroke, dementia, and may also be congenital.
  • Swallowing Disorders – Also known as dysphagia, swallowing disorders refer to difficulties in chewing, sucking, and swallowing food and liquid as a result of illness, surgery, stroke, or injury.
  • Literacy – Individuals with speech and language disorders may also experience difficulties with pre-literacy and literacy skills (phonological awareness, decoding, spelling, reading comprehension, and writing).

Aside from the disorders mentioned above, SLPs may also:

  • Provide aural rehabilitation for those who are deaf or hard of hearing.
  • Work with individuals with severe expressive or comprehension disorders (such as autism spectrum disorder and progressive neurological disorders) and provide augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) systems.
  • Help individuals enhance their communication skills (such as modifying one’s accent) to express themselves more effectively.

She holds her Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), as well as her New York State License and Teacher of Students with Speech and Language Disabilities (TSSLD) Certification. As a speech-language pathologist in the NYC DOE public schools, Jessica believes in helping each unique student find their own path to success. Jessica employs multiple evidence-based teaching strategies to appeal to all learning styles (i.e., visual, verbal, tactile/kinesthetic) — and she also believes that everyone learns better when there’s room for some humor and fun!

Jessica specializes in instructing students from elementary through high school in the area of literacy (i.e., decoding/phonics, phonological awareness, phonemic awareness, fluency, prefixes, suffixes, reading comprehension, inferencing, and vocabulary). Jessica is currently trained in the following reading interventions: SPIRE Reading Intervention, Phonics for Reading by Anita Archer, Ph.D., Wilson Reading System Level 1, Equipped for Reading Success by David A. Kilpatrick, Ph.D., Heggerty Phonemic Awareness Curriculum, as well as Lively Letters and Sight Words You Can See.
Jessica’s breadth of experience allows her to succeed in treating several other areas across the field of speech-language therapy. As a speech-language pathologist who has worked with individuals in preschool, elementary school, middle school, high school and life skills programs, Jessica excels at working with students on their pragmatic language/social skills (i.e., for individuals on the Autism spectrum), attention abilities (i.e, individuals with ADD/ADHD or Executive Function Disorder), and other language-learning disabilities . Because Jessica also holds a certification in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), she is an ideal educator for students and families across multilingual backgrounds.
Additionally, Jessica has been teaching SAT reading, writing, and math to high school students for over a decade, through various programs as well as privately and remotely across Long Island. Because of Jessica’s unique skill set as both a speech-language pathologist and an SAT instructor, Jessica is uniquely qualified to teach executive functioning skills (i.e., planning, organizing, time management, study skills, attention abilities) so that stuedents can achieve their future educational endeavors. Jessica herself scored in the 99th percentile for the SATs, allowing her to attend the University of Pittsburgh on a Full Tuition Honors College Scholarship, from which she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts summa cum laude (with highest distinction) and Phi Beta Kappa (top 2% of the university).
Fun facts about Jessica: Jessica and her family toured 28 colleges before deciding to attend the University of Pittsburgh (Hail to Pitt!) When at Pitt, she studied abroad in Rome, which entailed eating pizza three to four times daily.

When she’s not teaching, Jessica can be found trying to locate New York’s closest replica of her Nonna’s pizza, while plotting her next transatlantic flight.
