Dear All,

After watching one of videos showing babies reading, there was a logo in the corner and I was curious about the following program called Baby Bumble Bee.

http://www.babybumblebee.com/

Is anyone familiar with it? Used it? Experience with it?

I have tried them from the library just to look at them myself. They include multiple languages as well as sign language. They appear to be kind of boring for a baby low quality pictures and words not really movies. They are acclaimed for kids with autism and older I would think.

Well, you can see the list of words that it teaches on the internet. The videos teach vocabulary in multiple languages as well as sign language. It is not a movie, but more like they teach train and show like two or three different pictures. The video is still pictures mostly and is sufficient to teach the word but not as good of quality as YBCR. If your child needs slow the videos are slow and their success with autism seems to be good.

YBCR has music and more language and is more of a movie. Baby Bumblebee is more basic and vocabulary and has multiple languages and sign language. Most people would find it more boring, but maybe it works for autism not sure.

The other benefit to bumblebee is they teach more words then YBCR if you purchase the different sets. I think the advantage to kids with autism is it helps teach these words. Like opposites and emotions and action words. So if your child is having problems learning more complicated words I could see bumblebee being advantageous. After Colin gets started reading I may get them from the library again to see if they help him.

Another thought is it may actually help reading since it focuses more on the word without so many other distractions. It is probably more Doman like then YBCR. I beleive if your kid is interested and watches it all different kind of input is useful. If you can afford it buy it, if he doesn't watch it send it back. I believe they have satisfaction guarantee.

We have some of these.  My 1 1/2 yr ols seems to enjoy them, although they are a little long for her attention span.   She didn't watch any TV at all though until about 3 or 4 months ago & still is only allowed 2 or 3 a week.

I asked this question before too.  I didn't get a lot of replies, but here is the link.

http://forum.brillkids.com/product-discussions-and-reviews/baby-bumblebee-videos/

The other thing I like about them is that you can go in their web site & print off the corresponding flash card for each word.

Dear KMum & All,

Thanks for sharing that thread link.  I usually try to utilize a great feature of the forum and perform a "search" for answers to my questions before beginning a new thead, and must have inadvertently missed it.

This is good to know that it helps with delayed speech.   At the beginning of November 2008, my twin girls were 18 months and were evaluated at 13 months for communication skills.  This is due to "their own twin language" and we are a bilingual household (I speak English and my husband speaks Arabic).  The Early Intervention Coordinator and various specialists, along with their pediatricians, are not too worried and know that they will catch up.  It is only a matter of time and me learning specific teaching skills/tools to help them along the way. 

So beginning in January 2009, we have a teacher coming once per week to help develop their language skills and a few other small benchmark delays for developmental areas related to physical and adaptive that were slightly off.  In December while waiting for her first visit in January, I learned about YBCR, the Doman method & IAHP, and this excellent forum.  And I have been learning a lot and began their program recently.  I am still learning how to use LR Lite and it is excellent.  I cannot wait to upgrade soon - I am trying to work some bugs out of my computer and am afraid of losing it.

At any rate, the teacher is also a reading specialist and I told her about YBCR and the Doman method, as well as this site/forum.  Since she is very interested in early education, she is also excited about it and saw a nice improvement in their speech within one week.  It seems like the more they are exposed to, the more they absorb. 

I will defintely ask her about these videos in the morning.

Thanks again!
Ayesha smile

Yes, I also know that they are quite expensive. I will try to find them on ebay sometime, because I definitely will not find them in a library here in Malta. We are very poor in certain resources.
