  • Down syndrome speech — Speech Therapy DVDs can help your child begin to speak. ..It’s our goal at Baby BumbleBee to provide parents with these educationally appropriate DVDs, flashcards and apps for infants and toddlers. Many of the “Edutainment” products available for this age group make outrageous claims about the benefits their products can offer children. We take a different approach to learning. Our products focus on the development of specific age-appropriate skills and use time-tested approaches to teaching those skills.  We also strive to produce content that is “low-stimulus” (you can read more about this below, if you wish).  It’s important to keep in mind that the first three years of life are critical to your child’s intellectual, social and emotional growth. www​.babybumblebee​.com
