Most communication is through speaking to others.  However, some people have difficulty with using speech and they need to use different ways to communicate, like using Makaton symbols and signs.

Makaton uses speech with signs (gestures) and symbols (pictures) to help people communicate.  We also use facial expression, eye contact and body language to give as much information as possible.

If you are interested in finding out about Makaton, a customised taster session can be arranged to provide an introduction to Makaton, including a basic range of signs and symbols.

The two day Foundation Workshop is recommended for professionals who need to use Makaton in their work and for those who would like more in-depth training.
