Makaton has transformed the lives of children and adults with a range of different communication difficulties. It’s designed to support spoken language – signs are used with speech, in spoken word order to help children and adults to communicate.  

Our foundation workshop will provide a detailed introduction to Makaton, offering plenty of practical experience of signing alongside theory and technical information. 

By the end of the course you’ll be confident using the signs and symbols for Stages 1-4 of the core vocabulary – those that are commonly used in everyday life.  You’ll have learnt about research into sign and symbol use, symbol design themes, the use and purpose of Makaton and received an overview of alternative systems of communication.  If you'd like to build your skills further, you'll be eligible to book onto our Makaton Enhancement Workshops.

Whether you have a professional interest, care for someone who has limited speech or work for an organisation that strives to be more inclusive of those with disabilities, our session will provide a comprehensive introduction to Makaton. No prior knowledge is necessary.
