Social Skills Training

Model Me Kids® videos demonstrate social skills by modeling peer behavior at school, on a playdate, at a birthday party, on the playground, at a library, at the dentist, restaurant, and more. Designed as a teaching tool for children, adolescents, and teenagers with Autism, Asperger Syndrome, and developmental delays, the videos are used by teachers, parents, and therapists. Real children model each skill.

Video Modeling Effectiveness

"Two new studies at Indiana University demonstrate that videos depicting exemplary behaviors can be effective in helping children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorders develop social skills...Results from the [video modeling] meta-analysis indicate that both video modeling and VSM meet the Council for Exceptional Children's criteria for evidence-based practices."
- Bellini, S. & Akullian, J. (2007), Exceptional Children, 73, 261-284

Reviews

"The videos are great" - BCBA

"Both Susan Moreno and I had the opportunity to review these videos and we were both very impressed with the quality. The videos are great not only because the skills are modeled by peers, but also because the skills are broken down step by step and then reviewed using the storyboards which have actual pictures of the scenes depicted in the video..."

- Lara Blanchard, M.A., BCBA of MAAP Services

"Finally something made sense to him" - Mom

"I cannot believe how much your DVDs have helped my son. They are an answer to our prayer--in a big way!...Finally something made sense to him!"
- Holly Massman, Iowa

"A valuable tool" - Special Education Teacher

"I use the Model Me Conversation Cues DVD, Teaching Manual, and Student Workbooks in a high school social skills class with 7 high functioning students with Asperger's. The lesson plans are wonderful. My students are learning without even knowing it! I have seen my students initiate conversation and use the rules that they have learned in their general education classes with their peers. I would recommend this as a valuable tool for anyone working with students with Autism."
- Candice Clark, Special Education Teacher, McKinney, Texas

"A valuable resource" - Professor of Special Education

"Model Me Kids provides a valuable resource for teaching children appropriate behaviors that will serve them well in school and other group situations. I can imagine teachers making use of these video vignettes as part of their planned social skills instruction, or in a spontaneous manner during a teachable moment."
- Tom McIntyre, Professor, Dept. of Special Education, Hunter College

"Mandatory viewing" - ABA Therapy Mom

"Your DVDs are great! Our daughter LOVES them and has learned so much from these! We make them mandatory viewing for our home ABA therapy team."
-Karen Hofferber, Texas

"Loved it" - Autism Teacher

"I wanted to tell you that I showed Time for School to my students and they loved it! We discussed the social skills after watching it and they remembered everything. They talked about it all day long!"
-Cindy Glew, Autism Teacher

"Amazed" - Mom


"I am amazed at how perfect your videos are for the way that my autistic son learns. He stops the videos and practices the phrases. It was even more amazing when he used them with the typically developing child next door."
- Susan, Texas
