Sookie & Finn DVDs have been developed as a result of extensive research and working with a paediatric speech and language pathologist.
The films have the following characteristics which promote expressive language production and vocabulary acquisition in children:
•Actively involving viewers, giving choices
Because Sookie & Finn films are based on the daily routines of typical children, it is very easy for little ones to relate and the vocabulary introduced is highly relevant to the daily life of your child.
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. In each episode there is also a familiar nursery song built into the story to maintain engagement
