Mum and cute 4-year-old daughter with down syndrome sign 'happy' in Makaton

For the International Day of Happiness, this mother and daughter duo taught viewers how to sign the word 'happy' in Makaton.

Lucinda, a 4-year-old girl with down syndrome, uses Makaton to help her talk. This form of sign language aids people who cannot communicate efficiently by speaking.

Nikki, mum to Lucinda, runs several social media accounts dedicated to helping others learn Makaton and to raise the profile of Down Syndrome.
