SLP Feedback on Social Media

What Our SLP Customers 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.
Andrea Grout, MS, CCC-SLP
Speech Language Pathologist
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 Squad is easy to use and teaches students how to understand and use facial expressions and vocal inflections. It uses real life scenarios and peer modeling. On top of all the therapeutic benefits, my students love the use of videos during their speech visits. 10/10!
