Pre-K and Kindergarten
This no-prep digital curricula is intended for students working on social communication or pragmatic language. Speech-Language Pathologists, SPED Teachers, Social Workers, and School Psychologists have utilized our Video Modeling lessons, games, and activities to improve their learners’ social skills, reporting increased generalization of skills.
The gold-standard in interventions for social skills, Video Modeling is an evidence-based strategy. 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 interactions.
Promote carryover of skill by having students view content from anywhere. Make IEP reporting a snap with integrated student progress.
“Creating lesson plans for my social skills groups were always a struggle. Making my own materials took a lot of time that I didn’t have. Since joining Everyday Speech, lesson planning has been so easy. I can have multi-modal lessons that my students actually enjoy, such as the Quiz Game Shows and “What will happen next?” videos. I use the materials for students in the fifth grade through high school, but there are lessons for all age and cognitive levels.”

“As an SLP whose entire caseload in on the spectrum, Everyday Speech is a life-saver! It provides the framework for 90% of my lessons for students working on social pragmatic skills. Worth every penny.“

Our Social Communication Curriculum (SCC) is organized by broad skills, such as “Emotional Recognition.” Within those skills, we’ve included various goals, such as “Identifying Feelings.” These goals and skills align with IEP goals, and are organized into three difficulty levels:
Emergent: This is a good place to start if your learner is under the age of 7 or is brand new to a skill (i.e. it’s the first time they’ve started to work on it).
Intermediate: This level of material is best for learners between the ages of 7-12 who can perform a skill with some help or who have been working on a skill for some time and are ready for the next level of difficulty.
Advanced: This level is best for learners ages 12+ who are ready to be challenged by a skill. They may be able to perform the skill with a small amount of help or perform the skill on their own in some settings, but not all. For example, an individual may understand when adults use sarcasm, but not when their peers use it.
We also label materials by grade level, Pre-K through high school, based on the difficulty of the skills, the age of the actors, and vocabulary use. Scenes are reflective of the intended age group.
We understand that all learners are individuals with different needs, so we make it easy to filter our materials depending on what you are looking for. We provide descriptions in each of our materials with guidance around selecting what is right for your learner.
Like all of our curriculum offerings, our SCC curriculum is based on the well-researched tenants of video modeling. Our games, activities, and worksheets help to promote engagement and drive home the concepts in our videos.
The SCC was created for professionals to use with anyone working on social communication or pragmatic language.
Students of all ages can use the materials. However, we recommend that students have a moderate understanding/ foundation of language abilities to learn from the dialogue in our video lessons and printable materials.
We also provide scaffolding within the lessons. Depending on students’ abilities, additional support and scaffolding from educators may be helpful! View all FAQs here
