Baby Babble

Who is it for? Children 3 months to 30 months and their caregivers
What is it? A video created by speech pathologists designed to boost speech and language in young children.
Where? At home, daycare, or in the car.
Why?
To introduce your child to age-appropriate speech and language concepts, facial exercises, and sign language.



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?"

Talking Child, LLC was founded by two speech-language pathologists in 2002. Friends and colleagues since graduate school, Amy Chouinard and Cory Poland wanted to develop products that would promote speech in children and equip parents with ideas to do the same at home. They have done a fantastic job of conveying very practical information through this video.


Frequently Asked Questions

Why should my child watch Baby Babble™ before he starts to talk?
How old should my baby be when I introduce Baby Babble™?
Is Baby Babble™ for typically developing babies or delayed babies?
Will sign language delay my child from talking?
What sounds should my child be saying?
What words should my child be saying and understanding?


Why should my child watch Baby Babble™ before he starts to talk?

During the first months of life, babies begin to acquire the communicative skills that underlie language long before they say their first words. Infants are physiologically equipped to process incoming speech signals. By 6 months, little ones begin to categorize the sounds of their own language. For this reason, Baby Babble ™ is recommended for infants as young as three months of age. Exposing infants to the sounds, words, signs, and facial expressions in this video will help lay the groundwork for future expressive (what your child says) and receptive (what your child understands) communication.

How old should my baby be when I introduce Baby Babble™?

Baby Babble™ is recommended for children as young as 3 months of age. Visually, little ones can to fix their gaze on the bright and colorful objects in the video. They are encouraged to track objects with their eyes from side to side (a skill that typically develops between 3 and 6 months of age). They are also encouraged to imitate facial expressions and tongue movements. Auditorally, little ones are exposed to early developing sounds and words. These sounds and words will stimulate their minds in an effort to facilitate their ability to recognize and later understand language.

Is Baby Babble™ for typically developing babies or delayed babies?

Both! Typically developing children and children with delays will both enjoy Baby Babble™ and receive the benefits of speech and language stimulation. Baby Babble™ introduces a continuum of speech and language skills beginning with facial expressions and sounds, and then moving into sign language and first words, and finally, phrases consisting of two or more words. Baby Babble™ is intended to “meet” children at their current level while encouraging them to move into the next level. Baby Babble™ has such a wide age range (3 to 30 months) for this reason. Children at various levels and stages are stimulated by different parts of the video.

Will sign language delay my child from talking?

Absolutely not! We introduce sign language because babies have the motor capability to sign (or communicate with their hands) before they have the skills and muscle coordination to speak. Children want to communicate long before they can form words. Sign language can help decrease communication frustrations. By speaking in response to your child’s signs, little ones will learn verbal skills. As soon as they have the ability to speak, their use of signs will diminish. Research indicates that sign language increases babies’ verbal skills and IQ later in life!

What sounds should my child be saying?

As pediatric speech language pathologists, this is the most common question that parents of young children ask us. Children vary greatly from one another in the timing of specific developmental milestones. Click here to see a developmental chart that shows typical age ranges for sound development in children. If you have further questions then contact your pediatrician or local speech language pathologist.

What words should my child be saying and understanding?

As speech language pathologists, we assess language skills in two main areas: expressive (what your child says) and receptive (what your child understands). Both are important for verbal communication. Children must first understand spoken language before they will be able to speak. Click here to a developmental chart that shows the typical age ranges relating to specific expressive and receptive milestones. If you have further questions then contact your pediatrician or local speech language pathologist.
