November Content Updates

We know your plate is full (Thanksgiving pun intended). That’s why we’re bringing you tools and resources to help save you time and stress, like our newly added Student Data Tracking sheets (sample) and Goal Bank for Social Communication Curriculum (SCC) subscribers! These new tools make IEP goal writing, data collection, and informal assessment easier than ever before. 

This month, we also dropped a new printable Thanksgiving activity, new Pre-K videos, an Everyday Speech World game for elementary students, and more! 

We hope these new additions will make your work a little bit easier this holiday season. Thanks for all you continue to do to support social-emotional learning in your classroom!

NEW Student Data Tracking Sheets and Goal Bank

All SCC subscribers now have access to a downloadable PDF Goal Bank to use in conjunction with our Scope and Sequence sheet and newly launched Data Tracking and Assessment Sheets. 

Subscribers can access these new materials through the Social Learning Platform by clicking “Data Resources” on the Social Communication Curriculum page.

A Note on Neurodiversity

We’ve updated our “Keeping a Calm Body Introduction” video. We added language around self-advocacy and encouraged students to obtain what they need in a safe and appropriate way. Students are encouraged to find the best calm-down strategy for them, even if it looks different from the way others calm down, this could include pacing or using a fidget.
