The BABY Technique/Teknik BAYI is a reading instruction method that incorporates musical elements. The letters in the words BAca and nyanYI are combined to form the word BAYI/BABY. The BABY method is the best practise that practitioners(teachers) have implemented to improve the ability of students with learning disabilities to read syllables. In layman's terms, the BABY Technique is a technique for reading while singing. Students can read while singing different families of syllables with different melodies using this technique. Students and teachers only need to access 'Teknik Bayi Cikgu Bai' via smart phone, computer, tablet, or smart television to conduct reading activities anywhere and at any time. Students with learning disabilities are known for being easily bored and having difficulty focusing while studying. This scenario occurs as a result of their learning disabilities, which include developmental delay, Autism, hyperactivity, and others. As a result, practitioners(teachers) have taken the initiative to make learning more engaging by using the BABY Technique. When students enjoy learning, their concentration and mastery of the subject matter improve. The BABY Technique has many syllable families, but this year's best practise focuses on second year students who need to master the kv syllable. This method was successful in getting students to master the reading of kv syllables faster than usual. After students have mastered the kv syllable, the teacher can easily move on to other syllables, phrases, single sentences, and the next reading topic. Students enjoy learning and teachers enjoy teaching when the BABY Technique is used.
