Now is the time to contact us, if you are interested in summer speech language therapy & reading remediation services. Once summer arrives, we will plan our fall schedules.
If your child is currently receiving school speech language therapy services, we will connect with your school therapist and carry over his or her speech and language goals this summer.
If you are interested in literacy help, summer is a great time for your child to continue to develop and nurture their reading and writing skills. Particularly for children with literacy delays, don’t let your child’s literacy gap widen. Our language specialists work with a reading intervention teacher, local learning specialists, and a psychologist trained in evaluating reading and writing disorders. Our reading interventionist, Jo-Ann Kalb, is trained in Orton-Gillingham (PAF), Wilson Reading, Sounds in Motion (a phonemic awareness program that gets kids moving and learning consonant and vowel sounds) and Great Leaps.
Jo-Ann Kalb is a certified NY State and NYC Teacher and Reading Tutor. After a 30 year career teaching grades 1, 2 & 5 in Park Slope, including 10 years as a school librarian, she became a Reading Intervention teacher in 2003. She uses a combination of programs and strategies gleaned from her long professional career to work with students who struggle with reading, phonemic awareness or dyslexia. Jo-Ann is currently a Reading Intervention teacher at PS 10 in Park Slope and she provides group work as well as one on one tutoring.
