Singing Hands: It’s Signing Time DVD with Makaton


(7 customer reviews)

Our first DVD features a collection of songs taken from our classes and our CDs and songbooks. You’ll see us down at the farm singing Baa Baa Black Sheep and Old MacDonald and showing you lots of animal and play signs. We also visit the playground and park with friends and there are sessions with babies and toddlers. There is a great mix of simple songs with only a few signs to songs with more signs and concepts from the Makaton vocabulary programme.

Bulletin (RCSLT) gave our DVD 5 Stars for Content and Value:

“It’s Signing Time…. will be a valuable resource for professionals as a training tool and a resource for ideas….The DVD is well structured…there is a good use of props and other visual material and a variety of settings are depicted….The range of vocabulary is excellent – a mixture of daily routine items and activities…The DVD could also provide a useful introduction to Makaton signing for siblings and other family members.”

Speech & Language Therapy in Practice called It’s Signing Time an “Interactive Experience”:

“Having had an introduction to Singing Hands through ‘Something Special’ (Cbeebies), this DVD proved an enjoyable way to see more of their repertoire and add new songs to my repertoire. Produced for anyone interested in signing with babies and children, with or without additional needs…..Suzanne & Tracy make singing a fun, interactive experience, demonstrating the use of object and symbol props to embed a multi-sensory approach. An informative booklet explains the benefits, details key signs and gives useful tips. Suitable for parents, early years settings and special needs groups, it is a favourite at home too with my 10 month and 4 year old”

    Five stars!!
    Really love these two, genius idea! My daughter LOVES watching and trying to sign along. Great with all children but so good for those with speacial needs. and not one of those annoying get it off the telly kind of programmes. I like signing along with my daughter and enjoy that interactive time together. Couldn’t recommend it enough!!

  2. Katie March 2015

    Great! Recommend Highly – Katie March 2015
    Brilliant! Very well presented. Makes learning signs fun and easy. It isn’t patronising. I can (and have) watch this DVD again and again without getting irritated!

  3. Chuckie

    For all children! June 2015
    This is an amazing dvd, not just for children with learning difficulties, but for all. My daughter who has no difficulties absolutely loves this. She makes us watch it on an almost daily basis. She can now sign for lots of words and is 1 year old. I can’t recommend this dvd enough

  4. Ann

  6. Amazon Review

    We cannot get enough of Singing Hands in our house. This DVD provides memorable, enjoyable signs and songs and is an invaluable communication aid for children, especially those who use Makaton. Our daughter has Down’s syndrome and has watched the set of 3 DVDs frequently. The songs and signs are now firmly embedded and spoken language is beginning to replace sign, in part thanks to Singing Hands. Thank you ladies.

    This DVD is nothing short of awesome- our little boy has loved it since he was about 10 months old. He picks up lots of words and makaton signs from it. Now he has just turned two he sings along too which is super cute and very funny. We have both the DVDs and they have helped us on many an occasion calm him down and get him out of a tantrum almost instantly- he loves these ladies!! Wherever we go we take one of these DVDs ! In short it makes him really happy and helps him with his words so I’m a happy Mum 🙂
