Yakka Dee! Series 1
20 x 5 minutes for CBeebies
Have you seen the look on a child’s face when they say a word for the first time? They are filled with joy, positive self-esteem and social confidence.
But, 1 in 10 children in the UK have speech & language difficulties. 1 in 6 primary school children in the UK does not speak English as a first language.
To answer this need, Yakka Dee! was born. Each episode of Yakka Dee! concentrates on one word. The words featured in series 1 focus on the first sounds children can vocalise, making it especially helpful for young children, those with speech delay, autism or English as a second language.
Fist aired on CBeebies in 2017, Yakka Dee!’s viewing figures have been phenomenal and the show can be seen around the world!
