Promote Skill Generalization

Our materials foster carryover and generalization by modeling skills in different contexts and reinforcing concepts with visual tools and posters.

"Everyday Speech has brought life to my sessions. The children and I love using the videos to work through a variety of situations. The videos have helped the children understand the skills in a better way and has aided with generalisation too."

Melanie Muttitt, Speech Language Pathologist

A Method Based in Twenty Years of Research

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.

Video Modeling is the foundation of our curriculums

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 ever changing social environments, navigate emotions, make informed social decisions to solve problems, and understand prescribed social rules.

Over 20 years of research support the powerful benefits of Video Modeling
