FAQ

For what age group are your materials appropriate?

Our Learning with Yaya® songs are appropriate for all ages. The educational videos and books are appropriate for children 2 years and up. Most of the concepts presented in our products are typically acquired during the preschool years. However, since not all children master language skills at the same time, a specific age range is not determined. 

How are your materials different than the ones already available?

1. All our Learning with Yaya® materials were designed by a bilingual speech and language pathologist with one target in mind: facilitate speech and language development. We offer a complete set of tools to target important language skills. Each subject includes a book, a video, coloring sheets, and a song about the subject, which provides a fun and easy way to teach children the concepts and vocabulary they need to learn. You can also download our progress sheets (available in the FREE materials section) which will help you track your child's progress. Furthermore, our books, other than reinforce literacy skills, can be used as a "sing along" book, a great activity, especially if you limit your child's use of tech devices. 

2. Our Learning with Yaya® educational videos have a structure commonly used in speech and language therapy when teaching children new skills. First, the concept is presented repeatedly and associated with familiar objects or situations. Then, the child is requested to identify the object/concept (receptive language); and finally, he/she is expected to use the concept either by labeling an object/concept or by singing the song (expressive language).  

My child does not have a speech or language delay. Are your materials appropriate for him/her?

Absolutely! Learning with Yaya® videos, songs, and books are designed to stimulate language development. So, even if your child does not have a delay, the materials will facilitate and contribute to his/her speech and language development.
