Chepi The Signing Chimp

Chepi The Signing Chimp is the latest animated character added to the Wobworld family. Chepi has a wonderful gift that he would like to share with the courageous wobmob! For the deaf and hard of hearing each episode of Wobworld, the animated television show will feature both closed captioning and Chepi translating in American Sign Language (ASL), right on the television screen .
Wobworld provides essential lessons, and activities developed specifically for children with different degrees of hearing disabilities. This is not a place where they will feel any peer pressure and can learn at a pace they are comfortable with. They are presented with the opportunity to repeat any lesson for as long as it takes them to fully understand the material. Wobworld has turned to highly trained deaf educators, psychologists, and technical engineers to ensure that the best curriculum is being offered and by a state-of-the-art method of delivery.
Children who are exposed to a sign language from birth will acquire it, just as hearing children acquire their native spoken language. The Critical Period hypothesis suggests that language, spoken or signed, is more easily acquired as a child at a young age versus an adult because of the plasticity of the child’s brain. In a study done at the University of McGill, they found that American Sign Language users who acquired the language natively (from birth) performed better when asked to copy videos of ASL sentences than ASL users who acquired the language later in life. They also found that there are differences in the grammatical morphology of ASL sentences between the two groups, all suggesting that there is a very important critical period in learning signed languages.
American Sign Language (ASL) is a complete, complex language that employs signs made by moving the hands

Victory Island

A large body of water is located to the northern end of WobFalls. Here is where you will find three tropical islands: Aqua Island, Coconut Island, and Victory Island. Each Island can be reached simply by crossing a bridge from WobFalls. If you cross over to Aqua Island, you can learn all about the wonders of life underwater. If you cross over to Coconut Island, you can learn everything about nutritious and tasty fruits. If you cross over to Victory Island you will see that it is a very distinct place where you will find our courageous wobmob!

Children With Special Needs

Wobworld encourages kids to follow directions and participate with others which is especially important for children who have difficulty with following directions and social interactions. Wobworld always motivates and supports positive thinking and smiling. This helps both children with or without special needs. Wobworld characters are always positive and never negative. This is particularly important for children especially with autism since they typically have difficulty with social interactions.
Wobworld is all about imagination and it was designed to inspire creativity and imagination. For children in general this opens their minds to creative thought. This will certainly aid those with autism and other learning and behavioral disabilities who typically do not participate in childhood play and make-believe games.
