This is all 5 of the 'Your Baby Can Read' DVD's brought to you by non other than myself, D3M1S3, and I can testify that this program REALLY does work!
Did You Know? - Brain Development is roughly 90% complete at age five, so it’s necessary to be your child’s first teacher.
How It Works
A baby’s brain thrives on stimulation and develops at a phenomenal pace…nearly 90% during the first five years of life! The best and easiest time to learn a language is during the infant and toddler years, when the brain is creating thousands of synapses every second – allowing a child to learn both the written word and spoken word simultaneously, and with much more ease.
Dr. Titzer says the current practice of starting to teach reading skills in school is too late and children benefit greatly from getting a much earlier start since a child basically has only one natural window for learning language -- from about birth to about age four. During this period it is easier for a child to learn any type of language including spoken, receptive, foreign and written language. The earlier the child is taught to read the better they will read and the more likely they will enjoy it.
Studies prove that the earlier a child learns to read, the better they perform in school and later in life. Early readers have more self-esteem and are more likely to stay in school. Meanwhile, a national panel of reading specialists and educators determined that most of the nation’s reading problems could be eliminated if children began reading earlier.
Question: Are the babies simply memorizing the words or are they actually reading?
Answer: It is true that the babies initially memorize the shapes of the written words, but over time they will figure out the patterns of the written language in a way that is similar to how they figure out the patterns of the spoken language. Toddlers learn to add an 'ed' to make words to make them past tense or an 's' onto words to make them plural simply from listening to English. We know that they learn these patterns because sometimes a toddler might say "I eated" or "I swimmed" even if they have never heard these words. After the babies memorize enough written words, the child begins to figure out the phonetic patterns of our language. The first 50 words that a child learns to read generally take a long time, but once they know around 50 words they generally learn them at a faster pace.
The same is true with spoken language. Once a child understands around 50 words, the child can remember many words after hearing them only once or twice. This is why it is so important for parents to use many new words with toddlers. Reading is great for this because there are more infrequently used words used in books compared with a person's speech. It usually takes around a hundred written words or so before the child begins to figure out the phonetic patterns. The child will need to learn hundreds of individual words to figure out all of the phonetic patterns in English.
