teach2talk’s™ Verbs! series of DVD videos focuses on building
your child’s functional vocabulary by helping to teach your child
categories of basic building block verbs, which are critical to a
child’s ability to start speaking in sentences.
Action Verbs, the first volume in teach2talk’s™ Verbs!
series, helps teach children over 40 action verbs by using humor and
song and by introducing each verb in a variety of contexts to help your
child understand and start using these action words.
These videos are designed to benefit a wide variety of children at
different levels of language proficiency and vocabularies, from very
young children aged less than two years who are want to get a head start
on growing their vocabularies, to children aged two to three years who
got a late start talking or simply need some help building their
functional vocabularies, to older children with significant language and
teach2talk™ Co-Founder Jenny McCarthy, Mom:
When Evan first started speaking, he used a variety of nouns, but wasn’t
using many verbs. Combining visual support with auditory support really
helped him learn and understand verbs, and that’s what these Verbs!
videos do! As a parent, I know what keeps a child interested, and
having a therapist hold out two cards and ask a child “give me ‘run’,”
doesn’t cut it – but I think these videos will!
teach2talk™ Co-Founder Sarah Clifford Scheflen, M.S., CCC-SLP, Speech Language Pathologist:
Research shows that a child’s early years are critically important to
their language development. Verbs are especially important because
children need to understand and use action words before they can begin
sentence formation. teach2talk’s™ Verbs! series of videos use strategies that have been successful for me in my practice in teaching children core vocabulary skills.
