Who is the Social-Emotional Learning Platform (SELP) for?

The Social-Emotional Learning Platform (SELP) was created for anyone working on social-emotional learning or social skills including learners across diagnoses. Professionals include:

District-wide Social-Emotional Curriculum
Speech-Language Pathologists
Social Workers/Psychologists
Teachers (Regular and Special Education)
Applied-Behavior Analysts
Guidance/Adjustment Counselors
Parents
Students of all ages can use the materials, however, we recommend that students have a moderate understanding/ foundation of language abilities to benefit from the dialogue used in our video lessons and printable materials.

How are the materials broken into different age groups?

Materials are labeled as either Pre-K-Elementary or Middle-High school based on the difficulty of the skills covered, the age of the actors, and the vocabulary. Scenes are written to be reflective of the intended age group. We often hear that students relate to the actors on screen, which is a powerful benefit of using same-age actors for the intended age groups.

Is Everyday Speech backed by evidence-based studies?

Our materials are all written by licensed nationally board-certified Speech Language Pathologists and are based on the tenants of video modeling, which is the gold-standard in interventions for social skills.

Video Modeling is an evidence-based strategy using video recordings to model a desired skill. This technique has been shown to quickly improve and maintain new social skills. Our videos teach a full array of social competencies to improve school adjustment, cope with the ever-changing social environment, navigate emotions, make informed social decisions to solve problems, and understand prescribed social rules.

We developed our teaching method based on the following underlying skills needed to succeed socially and emotionally: understanding theory of mind, predicting multivariate outcomes, and recognizing social consequences.

While there are no published studies using out materials at this moment, video modeling is a teaching practice backed by over twenty years of research. Please visit our website to read more about how we designed our curriculum.

My school already has a Social-Emotional Learning curriculum, how does this fit in?

The Social Learning Platform is a great addition to any current curriculum because it comes with so many materials and covers such a wide range of skills and goals. Use the video lessons, games, or printables as supplemental materials – we’re confident these will enhance or fit in all with the target learning areas of existing curriculums.

Do I need training? / Do you offer training?

The Social-Emotional Learning Platform has been designed to be extremely easy to use and user-friendly. All lessons are bundled in an easy-to-follow and ordered curriculum with clear user instructions on every single material. Our support center offers training videos and tutorials, and we have customer support ready to go 8 hours a day, 5 days a week!

If your district is interested in longer training, we do offer webinars. Please contact us to seek more information.

Which payment methods do you accept?

We accept online payments through Visa, MasterCard, and American Express. We also accept bank/wire transfers.

For continental USA customers, we accept checks. To arrange offline payments, or if you have any questions, please contact our support team.

What’s your cancellation policy?

Everyday Speech allows in-trial users to stop using the service at any time without charge, and paid users to cancel their paid plan at any time, with such cancellation taking effect at the next renewal date.

What's your refund policy?

At Everyday Speech, we strive to create quality software that you enjoy using in your teaching sessions. You have a number of choices and we appreciate you giving us your business. We have created this policy that details what we will do should we fail to meet your expectations.

Monthly Subscriptions. If at anytime during the first 60 days of using our service you are dissatisfied, please contact us. We will do our best to address your issue, provide a work around or give a timeline for a solution that will meet your needs. If you are not satisfied, we will gladly offer you a full refund for your purchase.

Annual Subscriptions. Everyday Speech doesn’t force you into an annual subscription as a condition to use our services. We prefer to give you the flexibility to choose. In exchange for you signing up for an annual up-front commitment, we offer you a significant discount over the already-low monthly subscription cost. If at anytime during your first 60 days using our service you are dissatisfied, please contact us. We will do our best to address your issue, provide a work around or give a timeline for a solution that will meet your needs. If you are not satisfied, we will gladly offer you a full refund for your purchase.

Auto-Renewal. For your convenience, your monthly and yearly subscriptions will auto-renew until you cancel the service. Every time before your subscription auto-renews, we will send an email specifying the amount that will be charged to your credit card. Similarly, after each renewal we will send you a receipt via e-mail specifying the amount that has been deducted together with the next renewal date and the next renewal amount.

We know that sometimes customers forget to cancel an account they no longer want until it is has already been charged. That’s why you can cancel your monthly/annual subscription even five business days after your renewal date, and we will still process your cancellation and give you a full refund.

For questions, please contact support.

Exception to our Refund Policy. Please note that we will not entertain a request for refund (whether full or prorated) when we have suspended or terminated your access to Everyday Speech’s Social-Emotional Learning Platform due to a violation of our Terms of Service.
