Private speech-language screenings/evaluations and therapy for children of all ages.
Our team of certified speech-language pathologists specialize in pediatric auditory, speech and language-based therapy. With a broad range of backgrounds, certifications and specialties, our team has a therapist to fit each child’s unique needs.
We offer private therapy in the convenience of your own home or at our Upper East Side, NYC office.
The LWT goal is to improve your child’s communication skills to reduce frustration, improve social interaction and support academic and social growth as they develop.
HOW WE WORK
We address parent, teacher, or pediatrician concerns via a thorough evaluation/screening to best fit your child’s needs.
Evaluations consist of a combination of parent interviews, informal observation, and standardized testing.
You'll receive a written report addressing your child’s abilities, communicative strengths and weaknesses, and a recommendation for services if speech/language therapy is warranted.
We'll create goals for therapy that focus on your child’s specific communicative needs and provide parent/caregiver strategies to foster the process of team collaboration.
We start with an Evaluation
All speech/language therapy sessions are individualized to meet your child’s specific communication goals and interests.
Certified LWT speech-language pathologists employ a variety of evidence-based strategies and techniques and we shape our approach to best suit your child's unique needs.
Sessions include parent training as well as collaboration with other individuals on your child’s team (teachers, other professional services, caregivers, etc).
Sessions typically begin at 30 minutes with the flexibility to increase length as deemed appropriate by the clinician.
Our team incorporates a variety of skills, areas of specialty, and formal training in specific evidenced-based programs - these include: Sounds in Motion, PROMPT (Prompts for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets), The Social Thinking Curriculum, Wilson Language: Fundations, The Kaufman Speech to Language Protocol, PECS (picture exchange communication system) and TalkTools® hierarchy and more.
Clinicians can wear a clear mask or face shield if masking is preferred by the parent.
Fully vaccinated clinicians can also conduct in-person sessions without a mask if the parent/family would like to have a non-masked session.
Virtual sessions are available if Covid exposure or diagnosis prompts a change in schedule.

My son began taking private lessons with Look Who’s Talking when he was around 18 months old. When he started, he only had about five solid words - but within a few lessons it was like Brandie flipped a switch, and both my son and I learned invaluable tips on how to encourage progress. As lessons passed, Callan would say more and more words independently, and now, I can happily report that Callan is a literal chatter box and one of the most verbal and conversational kids in preschool. Whenever a parent comments to me about him, I always tell them that I attribute it to Look Who’s Talking.
and son, Callan
