Signed Video - Down Syndrome day 2018

Recommended Posts

 

A carpool karaoke lip sync video in support of World Down Syndrome Day features 50 mums and their children singing along to Christina Perri's multi-platinum selling track, "A Thousand Years". The mums are all part of a Facebook group known as "Designer Genes" created for parents who have a child with Down’s Syndrome born in 2013/14. They got together to show the world just how ordinary and fun life with the condition is and how they "Wouldn't Change a Thing". The video was originally inspired by Singing Hands - a UK organisation who's videos have helped many in the group learn Makaton for supporting their children’s communication development. Makaton is designed to help hearing people with learning or communication difficulties using signs, symbols alongside speech. With thanks to the artist Christina Perri for her support and Singing Hands for the original concept.

    • Hello wonderful people.  This week I am teaching my class how to sign what they ate for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I know the signs for the meals, eat and foods but how do I sign the sentences? Would it be "breakfast I eat x" then "lunch I eat x" then "dinner I eat x"?

      Thank you!

    • From the age of 5 i have had slight hearing loss that got worse and at 14 + i was barely able to hear. After surgery to correct that at 16 all was well but the drs were very honest and said that by the time i get to 30 my hearing will be back to how it was and will just keep getting worse. My mother, me and my 5 year old daughter have decided to learn together before my hearing get worse.
