Really useful material for kids with learning disabilities

"These videos are really great in that they support the language development of a child who is speaking individual words, but not sentences. My boys have had problems with language development, so I have been looking for years to find videos on just this level- extra simple stories and sentences. Most of what's out there is either language-rich "Barney" type series, or single-word series like Baby Einstien. Other than the rather sparse Baby Bumblebee collection, this is the only series I've seen that's in the middle.
My kids love it and watch is a lot, and it does help them. Both will say the words, and my older son (age four, speaks like early twos) will start putting two or three words together. A very big deal for a concerned parent!
A video series can obviously only support professional and parental attention, but I would very much recommend this series for any parent whose child has learning or language delays. It's also great for typically developing kids in the one to two year range.
I hope the makers of this series not only make more, but that they make a systematic, comprehensive attempt to introduce all the basic, everyday words and grammar that kids need in just this format. It would be a big project with many videos, but so helpful. I always wanted such a thing; previouis developmental series are not oriented this way at all, but are typically entertainment-oriented and prone to introduce words that are not very useful to a kid."
