HOW WE WORK
So what exactly do we do? Well, let’s start off with who we are not: we don’t espouse one program in particular; while we stay up on top of current schools of thought and philosophies, we don’t jump from trend to trend or insist on one school of learning. Instead, we combine a little bit of this and a little bit of that with a lot of experience to custom create a program for your son or daughter; read more about our approach.

Kate worked with my 7 year-old son for a period of about 6 months, helping him not only with speech therapy but also with phonics and writing. During his time with Kate he improved his speech annunciation, gained confidence and endurance in writing and improved his skills in phonics. She always walked in with a huge smile on her face and brought amazing energy to their session. Kate did a great job guiding a child who doesn’t like to sit still through an hour-long lesson, always ending with a game or a fun activity. My little guy looked forward to his time spent with Kate and never complained that she was coming, which is a huge help to a parent. She was always punctual and super professional.Jennifer, mother of JosephKate is a fantastic therapist and teacher and I highly recommend her services.
Rebecca is punctual, professional and prepared – each week she came with fresh materials. She was very interactive with board games and with visuals/videos/ & audio recordings—Ezra looked forward to his time with her and really felt challenged, in a positive way (he’s very bright and picks things up quickly, so he tends to get bored easily). Rebecca kept him on his toes and mixed things up enough to maintain his interest all the while progressing his development. With Rebecca’s guidance and encouragement, we are very happy with Ezra’s progress!April & BarryRebecca has been wonderful for Ezra
After two awkward sessions with different speech therapists, who favored two different approaches, a quick search online led me to Brooklyn Letters and Craig, who promptly remedied my confusion about how to best treat my son’s speech delay. On Craig’s recommendation, he’s been seeing Lisa, Brooklyn Letters speech therapist, for two months now, and I wanted to share how we are dazzled by his progress. Lisa is so wonderful. At every session (in our home) I’m impressed by her patience, thoughtfulness, preparedness, and creativity. In fact, I often find myself drawn to the rug where she works with my son, so I can learn to better model phrases for him when Lisa’s not around, not to mention her stellar assortment of toys and books: every session has its own unique theme. So, thanks Craig for sending her our way!Tanya (mom of JF, 2)Soooo Happy We Found You!
We took our youngest two year old twin to Brooklyn Letters for speech therapy. Craig was very professional, caring and engaging. It became such a special time for our son. Brooklyn Letters is equipped with all the tools, experience and knowledge to help. We absorbed all the recommendations about learning, play and speech—- and it worked! We are grateful for the warmth and compassion Brooklyn Letters exhibited and my son is on his way to a large vocabulary. From the assessment, insurance coding, to the parent’s training— we are very satisfied with our experience. We highly recommend Craig and Brooklyn Letters.Adam, father of LouisProfessional, Caring, & Engaging
Someone recommended Amy after my daughter’s first speech therapist decided she needed a little more help than she could provide. Needless to say, Amy swooped in and literally made everything better. She was down-to-earth, extremely reliable, and more than competent. The little girl who used to cry because “she didn’t talk well,” now won’t shut up. Now her speech and pronunciation are just where they should be – along with her confidence. And she misses Amy a lot. We are all so grateful for her care and support.”AshleyI cannot tell you how lucky I feel to have found Amy
My son is 2.5 years old and has been working with Craig for about 6 months. Craig is amazing with my son; he is always prepared and changes each treatment session to address the needs of my son. Craig has a great approach using play to elicit words, phrases, and sentences. At this point my son is now saying 3 word sentences and each week he shows improvement. He is always excited to see Craig for his weekly sessions. In addition, it is convenient that Craig comes to our home to perform his treatment sessions.Jaclyn, mom of KennyI highly recommend Brooklyn Letters and Craig for speech therapy services
We are so grateful to Craig. He has worked with our son, Max, for over a year with his speech delay. Max’s progress with Craig has been phenomenal… to the point where, going into kindergarten in September, Max will no longer be needing speech services! Craig has been very thoughtful in tailoring the program to meet Max’s needs and finding ways to inspire him. We’re so grateful we found him.Irene and Julie, mothers of MaxTwo Thumbs Up!
My 2 year old son loves to engage in activities with him and is always curious to see what he will do next. Very pleasant young person that’s energetic and is focused. Extremely caring about my son’s progress. Craig has eliminated fears and worries that I had about Ivan. Best decision that I ever made.Albania, mom of IvanMore than just a speech guy
