Video: Three-year-old girl with hearing impairment speaking to santa through sign language

Have your say

This adorable video shows the moment little Betsy Scott had her Christmas dream come true when Santa spoke to her using SIGN LANGUAGE.

Three-year-old Betsy, who has Down Syndrome and impaired hearing and vision, was riding on the Weardale Polar Express, County Durham with her big sister and nana when she was approached by Father Christmas himself. Normally quite shy, when Santa bent down to speak Makaton to Betsy she began to communicate back. Betsy’s mum, Kay Scott from Halifax, West Yorks., saw the video that her older daughter, Pheobe, 14, took of the wonderful moment. Kay said: “It was inclusion at its best and I was absolutely thrilled when I saw it.
