Have your baby or toddler learn with a real teacher, Ms Rachel! In this video Ms Rachel will teach key milestones and model activities that promote your baby’s brain growth and development. Babies can watch and learn while caregivers also learn the best ways to play, interact and promote learning throughout the day.
Ms Rachel is a master at encouraging speech, language development, imaginative play, social emotional development and is always sneaking in important learning concepts! Ms Rachel’s methods and curriculum are backed by experts and research in the early childhood development field.
If your child is not meeting milestones, let your pediatrician know and call early intervention for your state. Your child may qualify for free or low cost therapies such as speech therapy, occupational therapy and physical therapy. You can also contact a private speech therapist (speech language pathologist) for an evaluation. It’s best to act early and get your child help as soon as possible.
In this video Ms Rachel models:
First words such as mama, dada, uh-oh, ball, animal sounds, and car sound effects
First sentences such as “What’s that?” “I did it” and “I want toys!”
Gestures, which are shown to promote language development (Babies who use more gestures 9-16 months use more verbal language two years later) You can try for 16 gestures by 16 months old.
