The programmes use a simple repetitive format, making it easy to
learn the Makaton symbols and signs used in each episode. Children are
encouraged to join in with activities, songs and games. With Mr Tumble
and friends there are lots of laughs, making it almost impossible not to
join in the fun!
Over the years, one of the greatest benefits to Makaton users that
Something Special has helped achieve is that today, it is not unusual to
see children out and about, at nursery or in school, using Makaton
symbols and signs to communicate. And the best thing? Their friends
know Makaton too!
Go to the Something Special website for further details.
Join in with Justin when he sings the theme tune from Something Special, the Hello Song,
with our free download of line drawings of signs used in the song, which can be downloaded from the Makaton Library.
