Singing Hands Print
Written by Shirley Quemby Monday, 01 January 2007

Set up in 2000 by two mothers of children with special needs, one a baby son with Down's syndrome, Singing Hands is clearly going from strength to strength encouraging the use of signing and singing with babies and children, especially those with Down's syndrome or other special needs.

Signing is in Makaton (which was developed from British Sign Language) and is now led in nurseries, playgroups, schools, youth groups and local libraries. The founders, Tracy Upton and Suzanne Miell-Ingram, are keen to raise disability awareness, promote inclusion in the community and the benefits of signing with all children.

In addition to visiting many groups in their own time and appearing at the dsOK Christmas party, these ladies have produced two signed song books with accompanying CDs as well as a signing DVD.
