Everyday Speech had an amazing reaction to their social skills videos in their app Let’s be Social, so they decided to make a whole bunch more! They hope to have 40 videos by the time they launch!! So awesome! All of the videos will be available as standalone purchased through their website. You will be able to purchase videos, bundles, or subscribe to the entire library!
