Social Skills Training Curriculum

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 and teenagers with Autism Spectrum Disorder, the videos are used by teachers, parents, and therapists. Teaching Manuals and Student Workbooks are also available to create a social skills training curriculum. Watch previews

Video Modeling is Evidence-Based Practice

"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."

"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..."

"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
