Makaton with Lucinda
A YouTube channel with short signing videos created by a mum called Nikki and her daughter Lucinda. There are hundreds of short sign videos and can be a great place to check how to sign something new.
This team produce a wide range of signed songs on YouTube. These range from simple nursery rhymes to modern pop songs. Some of these are easier than others but it is an excellent resource.
This is a teenager who started creating Makaton song videos on YouTube with her little brother. She also does some basic signs, and her songs are quite fast to follow, but again worth a look as she now does some slower tutorial videos to go with her pop songs.ual impairments.
