What Our SLPs Have to Say

"I finally found a product that many of my high school students across a diverse population of disabilities can benefit from in the area of social skills therapy. These hands on videos teach a variety of social skills using actual video footage the students can listen to, watch and interpret instead of looking at a 2-dimensional photo card that is flat. I highly recommend this product due to its functionality for social therapy and it's usefulness across ages, especially high school."

What a lifesaver! I’m always struggling to find practical materials for my pragmatics groups. There are only so many times I can read out hypothetical situations or role play. This program really makes the concepts easy to understand for my students. They watch the situations unfold and have a better understanding of how to interpret facial expressions and vocal intonations. It’s just been such a great addition to my arsenal of therapy materials. Plus (and most importantly), it’s research based! Thank you for this product!

“I absolutely love this program. Not only is it research based, it is also prep-free and the biggest time saver"
Alexa Mazurek, MS, CCC-SLP
Speech Language Pathologist
"The Social Skills Squad program is great because it’s easy to use and it teaches students how to detect and use facial expressions and vocal inflections. Eye contact is often addressed in pragmatic language therapy, however, other key nonverbal details have been left out… until now! This program also demonstrates real life scenarios and utilizes peer modeling. On top of all the therapeutic benefits, my students love the use of videos/technology during their speech visits – I give it a 10/10!"
