Based on Experience and Research
Pilot Testing and Outcomes
We have piloted our programs in the Education Department at Cook Children's Hospital, Texas Christian University's Starpoint School, and The Key Center for Learning. We've significantly improved student ability to comprehend and understand the spoken word. Objectively, that's translated into students who communicate better when they speak and write across the curriculum. Subjective outcomes include students who report increased confidence for speaking and writing; and teachers who report students are better at showing empathy, perspective, and telling a story.

Our book is loaded with all kinds of activities that work on the 5 above mentioned areas for your kids. It also contains suggested sequences, rubrics, online resources, games and so much more!
Our custom games are based on research, real facial expressions, contain diagrams and work on all skill levels. There's even posters and handouts to share with others!
