I, too have a child with autism. He is 4 1/2 now. I have found that this was one of the most thought out videos for speech development. Regarding my son, he just needed to see it repetitively – as most autistic people do. Once, he got used to it, he LOVES it. It now holds my son’s attention, as well as my 19 month old who now repeats so much from it and names thsome of the toy props they use – “ball, balloon, bubbles, car, etc.) I thought it was well made and applied. It has a lot of sensory movement which I feel is vary appropriate for our son. The visualization of sounds by the therapists is quite advantageous. My son is fixated on their mouths and tries to mimic their lips. My daughter’s speech thrapist has continuously aske to borrow it because other families want to see it,too. I am purchasing two more of them (another for myself and one as a donation to our local library). I like Baby Bumble Bee, too. It is very well made and I think that having children as the interaction is a valuable part of the learning process. It is too advanced for my son, though.

We just got our copy yesterday. All three of my children love to watch it (5,3 and 2). My non-verbal 24 mth old laughs and giggles through the whole DVD and most importantly has attempted some of the sounds. We are really impressed with it. In fact, as far as encouraging late talkers, we would rate this one up there with “The Miracle of Mozart Numbers and Shapes”. “The Miracle of Mozart” takes a different approach by using kid’s voices to entice children to repeat what they hear. This DVD uses Speech Therapists and is really usefull in motivating our non-verbal toddler. It will also show you how to promote language. I can see why the parent of a typical child with normal speech development might not be impressed with this product- but if you are a parent looking for something to help promote language, this is a great choice. Good Luck.

I think that this video is different from other videos such as Baby Einstein, Brainy Baby, etc. because it focuses on speech and communication rather than language. What I mean by that is that our other videos seem to just throw out a bunch of words and hope that kids pick them up. Instead, this video takes fun sounds from toys, forms them into simple vowel and consonant sounds, and then shows how to make the sounds. So, for example, it takes a fire engine sound, transitions the sound into a narrator saying ah-ah-ah, e-oo-e-oo-e-oo, and then later shows the narrator’s mouth making the vowel sounds. My son picked up the sounds before he started saying the words. I noticed that the words that the video uses are simpler than other videos use, words like ball, up, and down. They are the words that a child would commonly say first in speech development. Also, my son picked up a couple of signs from the video. Even though he can’t say “eat” yet, he now signs “eat” instead of feeling like he has to whine. The video is made by a couple of speech pathologists, and it has a tutorial at the end that demonstrates techniques that they use. I picked up a few things that helped. Now I try to teach my son sounds before words. I changed his environment to make him communicate; I put his favorite couple of toys in containers so that he has to come to me and ask me to open the containers for him. All in all, I think this video is really good. It is a lot different from my other videos. My son and I have learned from it.

I have had the video for a few months and have shared it with at least a dozen 1-3 yr olds on my caseload. I have watched their reactions to the video and have been impressed. These children love the video and are verbalizing along with it. I have shared it with age-appropriate children, language delayed children, children with Downs Syndrome, children on the autism spectrum, and more.

Benefits of the video:

+ It has engaging toys that move and keep the child’s interest

+ the sounds are easy for the child to say and repeat

+ the children naturally want to interact with the video and repeat the sounds and signs

+ the speech therapists remain completely still during their camera parts so that young children will focus on their mouths (for speaking) or hands (for signing) and are not distracted by outside movements/facial expressions.

+ there are musical toy breaks (segments without speech or signs) so that the child is not overstimulated

+ the included developmental chart is beneficial for parents

+ the parent tutorial gives parents hands-on ideas that they can use on a regular basis.

Things I would change:

– more signs in the sign language tutorial

– a higher age range for slightly older children

This video is well done and I will continue to recommend it to families that I work with.

I purchased this DVD a week ago after being told that my son was showing signs of having a developemental delay. My son will run to the TV when I put this DVD in and he will sit or dance while watching it. He has added to his vocabulary almost 100% and is able to use the sign language that is shown in this DVD. I am amazed and thrilled at the results. I would recommend this DVD for anyone who is looking for help in regards to late talking little ones.
