exercises, and sign language.
Baby Babble 3 - Next Words with T, D & N. Baby Babble(TM) is an
award-winning series that engages babies, toddlers, and beginning
talkers with fascinating toys and charming music while introducing
age-appropriate speech and language concepts, facial exercises, and sign
language. Created by speech-language pathologists, Baby Babble (TM) 3
focuses on the developing sounds: T, D, & N.
Why T, D, & N? These are a few of the early developing sounds that
young children learn to say as they are beginning to talk. The sounds P,
B, & M, were introduced in Baby Babble™ 2. These bilabial sounds
typically develop first and are articulated using both lips. The newest
addition to the video series, Baby Babble™ 3, introduces the next
developmental sounds: T, D, & N. These alveolar sounds are produced
when the tongue touches an area located at the top of the mouth called
the alveolar ridge.
Baby Babble 3 includes
** Over 150 words and phrases containing the next developing sounds T, D, & N
** Higher level concepts including compound words, 2-4 word phrases & question words
** Parent tutorial that teaches parents speech techniques to practice at home
** Therapists demonstrating T, D, & N sounds and words
** Common sign language which enhances communication skills
Created by speech-language pathologists. Our mission is to teach parents how to promote speech and language at home.
Running Time: Approximately 50 minutes
Bonus features include a parent tutorial and sign language tutorial.

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.
should my baby be when I introduce Baby Babble 2™?
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.
Babble™ for typically developing babies or
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.
sign language delay my child from talking?
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!

words should my child be saying and understanding?
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
