There are all sorts of web sites to learn about potty training, why are you looking for free videos?

My "Mommy" answer: Check your library or for Signing Time Videos! They are wonderful!!! Signing Time is also on most PBS stations, but you would have to check your local listings. It is on ours at 5am, way before my little one wakes up. also has classes that you can take to learn to communicate through sign.

Now as a teacher of the deaf, I highly recommend you getting that baby's hearing tested!!!! Also, make sure your doctor knows that he is not talking! You could be dealing with a hearing problem, autism, or some other speech delay. If so, the sooner you get help the better.

Although I don't know anything about your son's situation except that his language has not developed by that age, I also recommend for your son's hearing to be tested and language development evaluated if not done already. Then you will have a starting point. I am also a teacher of the deaf and I am Deaf. I was very fortunate to have parents who started me in a good program for the deaf right away after finding out about my deafness at the age of 2. They also started learning sign language to communicate with me. All of that helped me greatly with my language development compared to many deaf people who are still struggling with English.

Now my son is also deaf, I have already began working on his language development so he will have the same advantage as I had.

Dino Cave Kids at has great new home videos for speech (also used in schools and hospitals) for 6mo-6ys -giving kids excellent practice of speech and other early skills. The videos use multi-sensory stimulation and adorable animated dinosaurs and real life video showing kids how to make the speech sounds and using them in words and short phrases- really making a difference. They teach parents along with the kids!
