Makaton is a language programme using signs and symbols to help people to communicate. It is designed to support spoken language and the signs and symbols are used with speech, in spoken word order.
Our school have registered and licensed Makaton Tutors, who are trained to provide Makaton workshops. Makaton Tutors must meet strict criteria set by The Makaton Charity, including attending annual Study Days. As part of your training, you should receive your own Study Pack including:
- Makaton Symbols and Signs
- An official Participant’s Manual
- A Certificate of Attendance
Courses are run in line with sufficient demand from parents and carers. If you would be interested in attending a course please contact the Main School office.
