Some of you might remember that I posted a while ago about my DS2 (nt) and his friendship with a little girl at his nursery.
Can anyone suggest any videos she might enjoy? My DS1 has always been a big fan of Thomas (quelle surprise) but this little girl isn't interested in Thomas at all. Her mum says that she likes music, and she sort of likes the Tweenies, but doesn't really respond to any of the other CBeebies ones. We've now lent her our Tweenies Songtime videos, but just wondered if any of you mums of girls have any other suggestions?
Dinosaur, DD goes through phases of watching/not watching videos but when she does she definitely responds to videos with recognisable tunes. Gender specific videos pass her by. She likes Sing and Sign and the Makaton video with Dave Benson Phillips. She used to be a huge Teletubbies fan, and particularly liked Tweenies Music video with a clip of children doing the 'bum bum' danc! And she loves the 'yes we did it' song from Dora Explorer so will watch it from the corner of her eye
Thanks JakB. I was wondering about Makaton. I'll see if I can get hold of Sing and Sign and the Makaton video.
DS1 used to be a huge fan of the Teletubbies. He used to stand in front of the television and flap manically whilst running on the spot! An early indicator that all was not quite right, in fact, although we didn't perceive it like that at first. We've still got lots of Teletubbies videos so I could easily lend her some of those.
what about baby mozart and baby bach..my son adored them and calms the savage beast so to speak!! but theyre supposed to be excellent for all age children and helpful fo rthere brains ..try and borrow some to see..theyre calming and fun to boogy to as well depending on child
Warning, be careful what you get for her. A friend's DD (with ASD) has been hooked on Barney for years. So make sure its not something so nauseating!!! Spider is very good. If you can't get it let me know as DD wouldn't miss it (and DS certainly wouldn't!).
DS2's friend has seen bits of Baby Bach and Baby Mozart at our house but they didn't seem to make much of an impression on her, so I wasn't sure how keen on them she was. But obviously she was quite distracted at the time - that doesn't mean she wouldn't watch them at home.
Davros - lol - I wouldn't wish Barney on anyone, and certainly not on this little girl's poor mother!
