"Am so happy to have found these" - Teacher
"I am very excited about finding these DVD's for my
autistic and asperger students. They present real kids with
practical everyday scenarios and dialogue that my kids are
missing. I know my students will be able to relate to these
lessons more because students their age are teaching them,
not adults preaching at them. The format is great--simple,
colorful and creative, but not too distracting. I can tell
that someone who understands the unique social needs of Asperger's
created these lessons. They can be viewed with the parent
and student at home, or can be used in speech therapy sessions,
or in other small groups. As I work in an independent study
program, they are perfect for our needs. Thank you. I spent
many hours searching for resources, and am so happy to have
"Professional" - Mom
"My daughter loves this video. She has already watched three
times since late yesterday... It is so professional and even
I enjoyed it. I have gotten so many things in the last 3 years
that were such a waste of money for her that I feel so blessed
when she actually responds to something that is going to help
her! I can't wait for the next one to come out."

"All time favorite movie" - Child with Autism
Thank you to Jeffrey, age 10, for sending us his Report on "Time for School." Read Jeffrey's Report.
"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..."

our SLP staff is thrilled with them."
"'Time for School' is Awesome" - Mom
"I am a parent and my son is HFA [High Functioning Autism]
and in 2nd grade. The school he attends is the central school
for autistic children in our County. I am also the chairperson
of the special ed advisory council and we are starting a peer
mentoring program in our county. I have a copy of your "Time

"An excellent tool" - Therapist

social skills group."
"Helped my son tremendously!" - Mom
I am interested in purchasing the Conversation Cues DVD.
I have the other 3 DVDs and think they are WONDERFUL! Please
contact me as soon as it becomes available. Thank you for
the great work that you are doing. It has helped my son tremendously!
"My daughter loves your dvds" - Mom
"My daughter loves your dvds and I am sure many other children do as well. These dvds are so important and really work. After viewing the conversation dvd, my daughter actually practiced (without prompting) eye contact and has improved greatly! You are positively affecting this community and I applaud your efforts!"
"10 out of 10" - A Fan
Dear Model Me Kids:
My name is Adam, and my Mom got your videos for me, and they
are great. I am a grade 3 student and I love to learn and
your movies I'd say are a 10 out of 10. In Time for a Playdate
I learned that I should stay with my friend all the time and
if I don't they will become sad. I also learned to talk on
topic, and I believe I can now do it. So I'd like to become
one of your Model Me Kids team members. Because I want to
be in Hollywood! Just kidding, anyway I want everybody in
my family to be proud of me and the Model Me Kids team.

" My Son Has ADD/ADHD..." - Mom
"Your video series is great for ADD & ADHDers too. My son has ADD/ADHD and has difficulty navigating social interactions. I bought your series for his special ed teacher to use in his social class. It is really great. Thank you. I think it could be helpful to other parents of [children with] ADD & ADHD."
" 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! It was unbelievable how he identified with each and every situation given in the video. Finally something made sense to him! We try to coach our Aspie kids through these circumstances, but until they actually can watch it, the pieces of the puzzle do not quite come together. I own Model Me Conversation Cues and Model Me Friendship. I was so excited to see that you have Tips & Tricks coming out soon! I cannot thank you enough!
" Catches Their Attention" - Mom
"Hi, just as an FYI..we purchased these 3 DVDs because we thought they would be a good tool to have to teach proper etiquette to children...and they really do. I understand you created them for children with certain disorders but in all honesty, all children should watch them because many of the "lessons" taught are unfortunately vanishing now a days. My children and my nieces and nephews love the DVDs. You should see my nieces and nephews right after they see the DVDs ---they are so polite! You should market them under proper children etiquette category. The fact that children are the actors is what catches their attention. Just thought I would give you guys a thumbs up!"
" Thanks for such a great product" - Mom
"I think the video is great. I love the fact that there is no background music. He can concentrate on the video...I have already implemented Stop, Look in the Eyes, and Listen when I'm talking and it is starting to work. Thanks for such a great product."
" Our son was captivated" - Mom
"Thanks for the DVD. It looks great! Our son was captivated, and asked to keep watching when I showed it to him."
" A Valuable Resource" - Professior 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."
" 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."
" 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!"
" 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."
" 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."
