Brooklyn Letters offers an array of evaluation and treatment services to adults who have speech, language, cognitive, neurological, and voice challenges. Some of these underlying difficulties may be developmental in nature, such as having a foreign accent or articulation issues, or may have been caused by a stroke, traumatic brain injury, disease, or other neurological condition. See below to learn more about our speech language services for adults. At Brooklyn Letters, we customize each therapy session to your specific needs and our ultimate goal is to help you maximize your communication skills.

Get Started


  • Language Therapy- Communication and language difficulties in adults can be caused by a number of factors. These problems may have started during childhood, after an illness or injury, or alongside medical conditions. The natural aging process may also cause changes in an individual’s communication skills. Our language therapy for adults focuses on communicating wants and needs, facilitating vocabulary, teaching grammar, telling stories, using social language, facilitating listening skills, and improving reading and writing skills.  Does Bruce Willis Have Aphasia?
  • Cognitive Therapy – A cognitive communication disorder refers to difficulties in language and communication that are caused by problems in cognition. This includes concentration, word retrieval, memory, orientation, and executive functioning skills. During therapy, our Speech-Language Pathologists (SLP) can design a treatment plan that aims to improve attention, concentration, short- and long-term memory, organization, reasoning, problem-solving, mental flexibility, reading and writing skills, and social communication.
  • Articulation Therapy – Articulation refers to the process of producing a sound, syllable, or word by using one’s lips, tongue, teeth, jaw, and palate to control airflow. Problems with articulation involve substitution, omission, distortion, and addition of sounds. Through therapy, a SLP can help an individual improve enunciation and pronunciation. Treatment is broken down into seven levels: isolation, syllable, word, phrase, sentence, reading, and conversation.
  • Elocution Therapy– The term elocution relates to one’s speaking style. It refers mostly to a speaker’s way of speech when speaking or reading aloud in public. It may also be defined as the study of public speaking, with special emphasis on pronunciation, grammar, and style. Elocution requires clear and expressive speech, unique pronunciation, articulation, accent, emphasis, inflections, and gestures.
  • Accent Modification Therapy – Our accent reduction/modification therapy focuses on improving clarity and efficiency of communication. Our bilingual speech-language therapists work with individuals to improve their intelligibility so that one’s speech is easier to understand and does not cause distraction. This can be done through a program designed to develop pronunciation and syntactic and intonation skills.
  • Fluency Therapy – Stuttering is one of the most common communication disorders that involves disruptions in the way one speaks. These disruptions or disfluencies include repetitions (repeating parts of words), stretching out sounds or prolongations, and difficulty in physically getting words out (different than word-finding) or blocks. Stuttering is developmental, which means the condition often begins in childhood. 
  • Voice Therapy – Aside from reducing hoarseness and treating vocal fold lesions, voice therapy aims to improve vocal behavior and eliminate harmful vocal habits. It has also been shown to help lower volume, energy, and slow down rapid rate of speech for those diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease.
  • Feeding Therapy – Feeding or swallowing difficulties in adults are often due to muscle degeneration, medical conditions, or an injury. It is often characterized by sneezing or eye-watering, gurgly sounds, coughing when eating or drinking, and recurrent chest infections. In many cases, leaving the condition unaddressed can lead to malnutrition, dehydration, and infections. At Brooklyn Letters, our SLPs help individuals better manage chewing and swallowing of different types of foods, from liquids to solids.
  • Public Speaking –  Consider an occasion when you were requested to speak in front of a big group. This can be anything from giving a presentation at work, moderating a work meeting or conference, or delivering a speech at a family gathering. Is that encounter bringing up any unpleasant emotions? Many individuals connect public speaking with a terrible experience that we would want to avoid at all costs. However, public speaking is sometimes inevitable. You do not have to be nervous, whether you are a kid making a class presentation or an adult speaking at your best friend’s wedding.

Our SLPs work with individuals who want to improve breath supply, volume, pitch, vocal cord issues, and decrease nasality.
