Our products are designed to encourage early language development from simple gestures to first spoken words.
Scotts Valley, CA (PRWEB) November 28, 2005
Baby Hands Productions, a company founded on the principle that babies can communicate at a very early age, today announced the release of “My Baby Can Talk™ - Sharing Signs,” the second in the highly acclaimed and award winning “My Baby Can Talk™” DVD series. Based on American Sign Language (ASL), this series is designed to educate, entertain and engage babies and their parents.
“My Baby Can Talk™ - Sharing Signs” is produced with the same proven format that garnered six prestigious parenting awards and made the first release in this series the most popular sign language program for hearing babies. This second DVD is designed to support and expand upon the vocabulary introduced with “My Baby Can Talk™ - First Signs;” offering babies more advanced signs and words in a format that delights the senses while tapping into a baby’s natural language abilities.
Designed to encourage interaction and set to inspiring classical music, “Sharing Signs” takes babies and their parents on an inspiring discovery of 28 words and signs – including apple, bath, ball, daddy, diaper, elephant, flower, help, mommy, please, share, and thank you! A Parent Tutorial focusing on key guidelines to help parents teach their babies to sign and a printed Quick Reference Signing Card offering illustrations of the signs presented is included.
The format of the “My Baby Can Talk™” series is specifically designed to respect the developmental stage, attention span and intellect of babies from 10 to 36 months. This series features beautiful real world images, delightful puppet shows, colorful toys in motion and babies communicating with simple gestures. Each ASL sign is demonstrated by babies and an adult, making the “My Baby Can Talk™” series the first sign language program to feature pre verbal babies signing all the words presented.
“Using sign language with hearing babies is one of the hottest parenting trends today simply because effective pre verbal communication reduces frustration for both babies and their parents.” said Kathleen Waidhofer, Creative Director of Baby Hands Productions. “Our products are designed to encourage early language development from simple gestures to first spoken words.”
Research has shown that babies are able to communicate with simple gestures well before their vocal capacity to formulate spoken words is developed. Babies who use sign language tend to speak sooner with larger vocabularies, show an increase in IQ scores and engage in more sophisticated play. Preverbal signing has also been shown to reduce the frustration broadly associated with “the terrible twos.”
“My Baby Can Talk™ – Sharing Signs” is available now from the My Baby Can Talk web site at an MSRP of $19.95. This new release will be available early next year at the same fine retailers where “My Baby Can Talk™ – First Signs” is currently available – the Right Start, Babies R Us and specialty retailers across the US.
