Working on social skills is a tough area for SLPs and students with pragmatic needs. Everyday Speech has developed videos that fill a BIG need in the social skills department!
Introducing Everyday Speech Social Skills Videos! So many times I have wished that my students could see what we were talking about. These videos allow students to see the situations as they happen!
About Everyday Speech: Social Skills Videos
There are currently 40 videos in this package. What makes them even better, is that they were designed by ASHA-certified SLPs! They cover a wide variety of common social issues that students encounter on a daily basis ( list of videos at the end of the post ).
Each video is about 2 minutes long, a perfect length if I do say so myself. The videos explain the skill/topic that will be discussed and show a clip of the skill/topic being used incorrectly or not at all. When something ‘goes wrong, the videos pause, and an explanation is given for what went wrong. Then they replay the situation with the skill being used correctly.
Something I loved about these videos is that they showed what the kids are thinking during the situations! This was great for my students who have a hard time taking perspective and therefore, need extra explanation and discussion to understand situations.
One of the best aspects of these videos is that the actors looked current! No outdated clothes or sayings! The kids in the videos looked like the kids that I see in the halls each day.
