"CPPEV is a necessary and timely program for development and enhancement of social skills in the school-aged population. It is comprehensive and data driven for measuring outcomes, modifying therapy goals and individualizing the essentials involved with conversational skills. The use of templates provides busy clinicians with tools necessary to document, measure and expand progress and outcomes in a sequenced hierarchy that is fun, engaging and relevant for students as well as clinicians. CPPEV is a must-have for SLPs."

Stop me if this sounds familiar:

You're confused and frustrated about the complexity of working on social, conversational engagement. 

You aren't sure how to move from assessments, to good goals, to effective work on conversation, and finally to progress tracking.  

You have trouble finding engaging materials for students

who've had lots of therapy and have “seen and already know” what you currently have.


You often put kids together in groups based on schedules instead of how well they fit together, so it's tricky to find materials that apply to and engage a range of students.

You wish you and your students could have more fun in sessions as they grow in their ability to have and enjoy conversation. 






Now Imagine This:

You feel supported in your work on conversation. You're better able to understand, work with, and talk about the complexities of conversation with fellow professionals and families. 

You have effective, organized materials that save you time. The steps for great conversation work have been created for you: you simply follow along and add your own creativity. 


You and your students enjoy sessions more because your materials are clear and engaging. Both you and your students are able to experience the fun and laughter that truly organic conversations (even during practice) give us. 


Your materials are applicable to a wide range of students and needs, and it's easier to track progress. Your work is organized, consistent, and visually appealing.  


You feel satisfied, grateful, effective, happier, smarter and calmer. You are reminded how much you love what you do.

  • I love my foodie side! Blessed with living in Northern California, there are so many places to explore & wonderful people to meet. Here I am practicing my baby/preschooler water buffalo grooming skills. Nothing like coming home with fresh mozzarella!!  

  • Craving delicious cheese? In the area? Audrey, owner of Ramini Mozarella in Tomales, California is one of the bravest women I've ever met. Tours (and cheese!) on Saturdays...
