San Diego, CA (PressExposure) May 25, 2007 -- The call for improved literacy in children is a critical national objective and early learning skills are essential to that success. To address this objective (Smart KidsÂ®) Penton Overseas, Inc. has released the newly updated and expanded version of their proven and award winning educational DVD program âYour Baby Can Read!â An early language development system for children ages 3 months to 5 years, âYour Baby Can Read!â includes five easy-to-use, interactive DVDs, five double-sided interactive sliding word and picture cards, one wipe-clean word card and one erasable non-toxic pen. This remarkable infant reading program, and its founder, Robert Titzer, Ph.D., have captured the attention of educators, researchers, parents and government agencies worldwide.
âYour Baby Can Read!â was developed by Dr. Titzer, a prominent professor and expert infant researcher, as a way to give his daughter, Aleka, an early start in reading skills. The results were astonishing. By her first birthday, she could read more than 100 words. By age two Aleka regularly read 10-20 books a day and by age four, she could read at the 11th grade level phonetically, on par with a 16-year-old. âThe results were so dramatic, I knew I had to bring this system to all families who want to give their kids a head start on literacy,â says Dr. Titzer. Based on years of Ph.D. research in Human Performance at Indiana University, his unique program is a natural method of teaching infants and toddlers the written word at the same time they are learning the spoken word.
Hereâs what satisfied parents say about âYour Baby Can Read!â
âMy baby loved watching these videos and I was flabbergasted when I found he understood the written words when I showed him the word cardsâ¦These videos teach reading in the way babies learn bestâby making it fun.â â Dr. Julia Moravcsik
âYour Baby Can Read!â is engaging and fun for toddlers. The characters are easy for children to identify with and there is plenty of repetition to aid the learning process. The videos are a delightful addition to the tools available for parents who want to stimulate their childâs cognitive development.â â Dr. Carolynne Manka
âThe best thing about âYour Baby Can Read!â, is Emily now loves to read. She always asks us to read to her and loves pointing out and saying words that she recognizes in books. She is now learning new words that are not in the program, just by reading books with us. We are so pleased that she loves to read, it will enable her to enjoy her future education.â â Richard Tanner
Studies prove that the ânatural windowâ of language development is 3 months to 5 years; while during that period, tens of thousands of synaptic connections are made each second in the brain, opening the door for increased learning capacity. The earlier a child learns to read, the more self-esteem and confidence they acquire, leading to better performance in school and beyond. A national panel of reading specialists and educators determined that most of the nationâs reading problems could be eliminated if children began reading earlier. The âYour Baby Can Read!â program has successfully taught thousands of infants to read through its fun and interactive teaching methods.
âYour Baby Can Read!â teaches whole language and phonics using a combination of sound, sight and interaction. This multi-sensory technique helps a child grasp word recognition, leading to early reading success. Key to the program is teaching infants and toddlers the written language while learning spoken language, and as a result children learn phonics naturally.
In addition to the DVDs and word cards, âYour Baby Can Read!â includes a complete overview of the program and parental orientation by Dr. Titzer, plus parent testimonials. Also included is the âKidsâ Club,â featuring songs, poems, and fun word games that enhance the childâs learning experience. âYour Baby Can Read!â is available for the incredible low price of only $79.95.
