Our professionals who provide specialized literacy services for kids or for children or for students are like the Olympic coaches of language arts. We specialize in the complete literacy remediation package: reading, writing, speaking, and listening.
When we’re working with students (preschoolers, elementary, middle, and high school), we focus on all areas of language such as written and verbal skills or reading and listening comprehension. After all, you can’t have one without the other, since that would be like peanut butter minus the jelly.
We also offer in-home visits. Our team can travel to your home or child’s school for sessions, if you re unable to come to our offices. Most of us are Brooklyn based but some of us travel to Queens and Manhattan. How’s that for customer service
