Hello! We’re Brittany and Cal Brunell, the founders of Everyday Speech! This is our story.

Brittany Brunell, MA, CCC-SLP, Co-founder

In 2012, Brittany, a certified SLP, came face to face with a big problem. The huge gap between the latest research in social-emotional learning and the existing resources.

Studies had proven the effectiveness of video modeling time and again, but there was no resource in the market to prepare teachers and professionals to incorporate it into their practice. Teachers were single-handedly compiling curriculums and creating make-shift materials for their classes.

Cal Brunell, Co-founder

She and Cal decided to change that. They wanted to help students learn social-emotional skills through the easiest, most effective methods available—they wanted to help kids experience social connectedness without agonizing over skills and behaviors.

So, they built Everyday Speech by collaborating with Speech-Language Pathologists, a video and animation team, and a web development team. They put the latest research at the core of their platform, made learning super accessible and constantly updated their curriculum.

The final result was a never-seen-before video-based SEL curriculum that was as comprehensive as it gets.
Everyday Speech was out and people were loving it!

Brittany Brunell, MA, CCC-SLP, Co-founder

“Creating this company has been an amazing journey as I’ve seen it grow from a dream I had while working my first year out of college to the full vision as it is now. Everyday Speech truly is my family, as I work every day with my husband and amazing team whom I love and admire. We were fortunate enough to travel the world and do what we love as we built the company along the way, which is something I will never take for granted. This past year we welcomed our first child, replacing the business which is now “baby no. 2.”

Carrie Driscoll, CCC-SLP Lead SLP

“I was a SLP in public schools for 10 years before joining Everyday Speech. It was easy to take the leap. I knew how valuable it was for me as a teacher and wanted more students to experience the growth my students had made using it. Everyday Speech’s teaching philosophies matched perfectly with mine. I love the dignified way Everyday Speech coaches students toward new ways of thinking and behaving. Outside of work, I enjoy time with my three teens, and workouts with friends.”

Casey Hamilton, CCC-SLP Clinical Content Creator

“After a couple years working in the public school system as a SLP, I joined Everyday Speech to pursue an opportunity to make a difference in a ‘big-picture’ way. My favorite thing about working for Everyday Speech is that I get to use my clinical knowledge and creative skills to create meaningful and engaging content for students all over the world. Outside of work, I’m walking down the aisles of Trader Joes, at the yoga studio, or at the ballpark supporting my fiancé’s professional baseball career.”

And the people that bring it all to life!
