February Content Update

Hi Everyday Speechies,

For February, the month of love, we’re focusing on loving difference

s! This could mean celebrating our own unique traits and/or the different qualities and strengths of our peers. When we celebrate differences in all their forms, we create stronger, more vibrant communities.

To get the celebration started, we’ve released several new neurodiversity materials for elementary students. These new resources include tips for self-advocating, using visual referencing as a comfortable alternative to eye contact, and a self-reflection exercise that encourages students to think about what they love about themselves.

Plus, don’t miss our Valentine’s Day Activity! Scroll to the bottom of this post for your free download.

We hope these new materials will remind your learners to be proud of who they are and to stand up for what they need!

Everyday Speech is easy to use and includes most topics that I discuss with my students with social language difficulties. The videos are the BEST! Easy to watch and for kids to relate to. They generate the best discussions."
