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

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.

We decided to change that. We wanted to help students learn social-emotional skills through the easiest, most effective methods available—we wanted to help kids experience social connectedness without agonising over skills and behaviors.

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