Sookie & Finn DVDs are designed for expressive language development and vocabulary acquisition in babies and toddlers.  

They are also a tool that speech therapists use with young children with speech delay both during and outside therapy time (complementary to speech therapy).

The films are based on our unique methodology which is derived from the latest available research in children's language development as well as utilising extensive consultancy from a UK based paediatric speech and language therapist.

We introduce 80 of the most frequently used English words, set in daily routines familiar to young children. This ensures that little ones can relate to the film and that the vocabulary introduced is highly relevant to the daily life of your child.
Simple dialogues ensure toddlers can appreciate the storyline. The simple backgrounds are interesting but not too overwhelming.
Timing is appropriate to give opportunity for parent to repeat and reinforce vocabulary shown on screen.
Narration by adult and repetition of key vocabulary enable faster memorisation and retention of vocabulary.
Nursery songs built into the story keep the little ones entertained and engaged.
Scenes actively involve viewers by giving choices which encourage expressive language reproduction.
At the end of each scene, there is a summary section where an adult repeats the target vocabulary against a background of fragments from the film for increased retention.
Your toddler will have a great time watching the DVD.
