    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

What is a speech and language pathologist?

A speech and language pathologist (SLP) is a qualified professional who specializes in assessing, diagnosing, and treating communication disorders. At Manhattan Letters, our speech and language pathologists are highly trained and certified to provide comprehensive speech and language services. Our SLPs work with individuals of all ages with communication difficulties, such as language delays, learning disabilities, hearing loss, and more.

We strive to provide a comfortable, safe, and supportive atmosphere to ensure our clients receive the highest quality of care.

The feedback from these evaluations is invaluable to the patient and their families in developing an effective treatment plan. The evaluations provided by our Manhattan private pay speech therapy are essential to helping patients reach their speech and language goals.

Is an evaluation necessary to get started?

Yes, a comprehensive evaluation is necessary to get started with private pay speech therapy. This evaluation will help to identify the areas of need, the severity of the communication disorder, and the best course of treatment for the individual. The evaluation will be conducted by a licensed and certified speech language pathologist. It will typically include assessing the individual’s verbal and nonverbal communication skills, hearing, auditory processing, language, articulation, and fluency. This evaluation will provide a basis for creating an individualized treatment plan tailored to the individual’s needs. Ultimately, this is the first step in improving communication skills and reaching individual goals.

Advantages of Private Practice For Speech Therapy

Private speech therapy practice provides a number of advantages to patients, including :

  • Increased access to experienced speech therapists
  • flexible scheduling options, and personalized treatment plans
  • allows patients to receive the most advanced treatment available
  • allows for more individualized care
  • convenience and privacy of private speech therapy

Disadvantages of Private Practice For Speech Therapy

The disadvantages of private practice for speech therapy can include the cost associated with it. Private practice speech therapy can be more expensive than public services, and the cost can vary depending on the therapist and their services. Additionally, private practice speech therapy may not be covered by insurance, meaning patients are responsible for paying out of pocket. It can also be difficult to find a therapist specializing in the type of speech therapy a patient needs, especially in a rural area. Finally, developing a long-term relationship with a private practice therapist can be challenging, as they are often busy and have a high turnover rate.

How long are therapy sessions?

This allows ample time for the therapist to evaluate the patient’s condition, develop a course of treatment, and provide the patient with the best possible outcome. The length of the sessions can be adjusted to accommodate the patient’s needs. The length of each session is determined before any treatment is initiated and typically remains consistent throughout treatment.

I also want to thank Manhattan Letters generally for being such a great resource/business! I want to thank you so very much for introducing us to Amy and for including her in the Manhattan Letters network. When we contacted Manhattan Letters we were completely unsure of what our daughter needed in terms of speech therapy, or what we could achieve under the very stressful circumstance of having only about eight weeks prior to moving abroad during which to undertake any therapy at all. Amy helped us to strategize both pre-and post-evaluation and was practical, efficient, and communicative throughout the process of initiating and, later, undertaking, the speech therapy for our five-year-old. Having Amy come to our home twice a week was the perfect solution for us it definitely put my daughter at ease and certainly made our lives infinitely easier; Amy was always on time and ready to jump right in. Our daughter warmed to Amy immediately (not surprisingly, given Amy’s warm personality and engaging demeanor) and looked forward to her sessions every week, constantly asking “Is it an Amy day?” Within one or two sessions our daughter was making sounds she had never made before, and she continues to make amazing progress. I can’t praise Amy’s work highly enough and only wish we were remaining in the city so our daughter could continue therapy with her!

Kate is a fantastic therapist and teacher and I highly recommend her services. 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 an 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.

We are incredibly grateful to Kristi and to Manhattan Letters. Kristi is a truly outstanding speech therapist. She clicked instantly with our son Hugh and delivered almost immediate results. Other therapists fumbled as they tried to connect with our boy; it was maddening and frustrating. But Kristi skillfully tapped into Hugh’s potential and brought out his very best week after week. Watching Kristi work with our son filled us with hope and optimism about his future. Kristi understood our goals for our son and implemented a smart, holistic approach. Instead of teaching rote phrases, Kristi saw the big picture. She pushed our son to relate and really communicate with others. Kristi carefully planned her sessions with Hugh but also showed great flexibility and creativity at times in order to maximize every minute she spent with our boy.

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. 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.
