Baby Babble is an engaging speech-enhancing video prepared by speech-language pathologists for both you and your precious child. Bonus features include a parent tutorial, sign language tutorial, and speech and language developmental charts-FREE!
The Baby Babble video delights children by exposing them to early developing sounds and words that lay the groundwork for future communication. The simple sign language incorporated into Baby Babble provides children who know what they want to say with a bridge for communication until they acquire the skills for spoken language. Captivating facial exercises appeal to children by fostering sound play, encouraging imitation, and developing muscle coordination for sound and feeding development. A 12-step parent tutorial included in the Baby Babble video provides parents with answers to questions such as, "What should my child be saying?" and "What can I do to encourage my child's speech?"
Sounds and Words: Speech-language pathologists hand-selected the sounds and words in the Baby Babble video. Each sound and word is developmentally age-appropriate. Children love to imitate the sounds and words because they are fun to say! Speech-language pathologists use sounds and voices that grab children's attention. Baby Babble encourages children to participate in the video by talking along.
Sing Language: Children are exposed to ten common signs throughout the Baby Babble video while a sign language tutorial is included at the end of the video so that parents can quickly learn the signs and use them at home.
Sign language not only stimulates multiple parts of the brain, but it also bridges the gap of communication. It offers a way for children to express their wants even if they do not yet have the ability to speak. This significantly cuts down on the frustration levels of both parents and children. Research has shown that babies who use symbolic gestures, or signs, have larger vocabularies, understand more words, and engage in more sophisticated play than non-signing babies. Parents are often concerned that their children won't learn to talk if they are taught sign language. On the contrary, research suggests that their first spoken words are usually words they had learned to sign. Simple sign language promotes talking. As children learn to speak more words, their use of signs fades away.
Facial Exercises: Facial exercises, or oral motor exercises, are important for developing muscle strength and coordination. Some facial exercises used in the video also include vocalizations to promote vocal play. Children begin learning how to talk through vocal play. Vocal play is making noises while playing. Children learn to make sounds, vary pitch, and gain attention with these vocalizations.
How do I encourage vocal play at home? Encourage different vocal noises and fun facial expressions. Imitate your child and encourage your child to imitate you. All of these skills are important pre-speech activities. More tips about integrating vocal play are included in the parent tutorial following the child portion of the video.
Parent Tutorial: The parent tutorial is an eight minute video segment written by speech pathologists. It includes 12 tips that parents can use to encourage sounds, words, and verbalizations in their child at home. The tips in the tutorial are regularly used by speech language pathologists. The tutorial also explains some of the building blocks of verbal development so that parents and caregivers can have an idea of what their child should be saying during different stages of development. Knowing these building blocks will facilitate your interactions with your child. The parent tutorial teaches you how to encourage your child to communicate at home.
