B to Say

家長應該都曾有過「猜不透孩子為何而哭」的經驗,原因在於寶寶在口語能力尚未發展成熟之前,大多只能以哭的方式表達,而專家將聽損使用的手語略為修改並參考聾父母與聽常寶寶的互動方式發明了嬰幼兒手語,透過嬰幼兒手語,寶寶能藉由一些簡單的手勢或肢體語言表達他們的想法與需求。
目前市面上嬰幼兒手語教材多以平面圖卡為主,除了無法有效吸引嬰幼兒長時間專注力,圖卡上的動作順序也不易辨認,易導致父母失去信心而放棄嘗試與教學。
" B To Say "為一套專為七個月至三歲幼兒與其家長所設計的嬰幼兒手語教具,藉由敲擊附有感測功能的積木並連動app,依幼兒對於詞彙的實用程度將詞彙分做基本、動作、生活、自然及其他。初期建議家長可先從基本類別學起,針對會哭的需求引導寶寶藉由手語表達。幾何形狀的軟積木可讓寶寶學習形狀配對,有助於手眼協調的細部運動,圓盤的底下嵌有平板架,方便收納並能將平板擺放於適當角度。以親子共同學習的方式,提升孩子學習時的注意力及專注力,讓親子之間的溝通更加順暢,更大大的降低父母在照顧孩子時無法理解孩子需求的可能性,成為口語發展過渡期的最佳溝通方式。

B to Say

Parents may have experience about not figuring out why their baby’s wailing. The reason is babies can only express their need by crying. If parents don’t recognize what does the baby want, it will cry harder, and parents will become more anxious. Then, it turns into a vicious circle. Fortunately, the sign language for infants and toddlers prevents this situation. In the light of this, we learned that baby sign language is a way for parents and children to communicate, expressing their thoughts and needs through some simple gestures or body language. Baby sign language is a modification from that for the hearing-impaired. Also, it refers to the interaction between hearing-impaired kids and their family. Thus, it becomes the best tool for communication for children who are in the transition period of verbal development. Nowadays, most teaching materials of the sign language for children on the market are graphic cards. They are unable to attract children‘s attention for a long time, not identify the gestures easily, either. This may bring on parents losing their confidence and giving up teaching.
" B To Say " is the expert-designed teaching aids of sign language for children between 7months to 3 years old and their family. First, parents should download the app and open it. Next, prepare the teaching aids. Then, lead their baby to put a block in the right position on the tool and beat it. After that, the app will demonstrate an animation of what’s the situation to use as well as the gesture of the sign language. As the result, they can learn it well and repetitively. It classifies the terms into five categories: BASIC, ACTION, LIFE, NATURE, and OTHERS by feasibility. Initially, we suggest that parents start from basic terms to guide the baby expresses its needs by sign language.
" B To Say " has several benefits. It challenges baby’s cognition and hand-eyes coordination because baby need to match the right shape of the block to show the animation. Also, it appeals baby’s interest and increases the interaction between human and the machine. Last, it is convenient to storage due to its special space for pad. It will not only improve this issue, but also make the children interact with adults earlier. Thereby they will be better at communication skill, language, cognition and intellectual development.
