As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, the BaDaBum digital platform, the first such Croatian platform that interactively and effectively helps children develop speech and language skills, has been enriched with new content to help preschoolers prepare for their enrollment in primary school.

The BaDaBum digital platform has been supplemented with new levels on as many as five different games, and two more games will soon receive their upgrades. In addition to the existing ones, parents of preschool age children can also find eight new exercise sheets through which their children can improve everything from graphomotor skills to attention, memory and visual perception.

Back at the end of February, testing for enrollment in the first grades of primary school began, in which the child’s psychophysical, graphomotor and intellectual skills are assessed and a decision is made on the child’s readiness for enrollment in the first grade. Kindergartens conduct unofficial assessments with preschoolers between the months of January and March, but each school re-tests all of its potential freshmen before enrolling them. In order for the enrollment process to go smoothly, it is important to start preparing in time and help your child get better acquainted with the learning process through a fun and positive experience.

“Exercises and games on the BaDaBum digital platform cover the development of all skills that children need to master before starting school, and it includes: pre-mathematical and graphomotor skills, language comprehension skills and phonological awareness – the analysis and synthesis of words and voices, syllables, recognition and formation rhymes, vocabulary development, visual perception, attention, concentration, memory and so on,” explained Martina Starcevic Perica, one of the speech therapists on the BaDaBum digital platform.

It’s worth mentioning that BaDaBum is primarily intended for preschool children 4-7 years old, their parents and speech therapists, and behind the project are experts from the ABC speech therapy and rehabilitation centre, the 404 agency and Shape studio.
