There are 3 versions of this resource. This is the Regular version.
Baby, What’s Wrong is an Animated Step-by-Step song. As you can see from the content below it is designed to support emerging pretend play babycare skills. It also reinforces words that reflect important physical (sick, tired, cold) and emotional states (thirsty, hungry, wet) that every parent wants their child to be able to communicate above and beyond fretting or crying.

This PowerPoint show file can be presented in a large group format on the ‘large screen’ (interactive whiteboard) or can be displayed during small group/individual therapy on the ‘small screen’ (iPad) using the free Microsoft PowerPoint app. As is typically the case with ASbyS there are a multitude of creative ways that you can use this resource, but I like to read each verse with a literacy focus first, then re-sing the verse pointing to the printed words as we sing. The song button (available on each page) can be used to add a vocal track while pointing to the printed words when revisiting the page content this time using song. As an aside, it is really fun to conduct this activity giving each child a set of props allowing allowing them to act out each verse with their baby doll as the verses unfold.
Have fun using this resource!
