Makaton is a language programme using signs and symbols to help people to communicate. It is designed to support language and the signs and symbols are used with speech, in spoken word order. Makaton can support communication for children and adults with a wide range of communication needs. It can be used with all ages, from babyhood onwards. It is very flexible and can be adapted to meet the needs of the individual user.
Before attending the training, you will need your “qualified tutor”, in this case Threads of Success, to purchase an exciting and comprehensive toolkit for you at the time of booking, which includes all the materials and resources required to successfully deliver this intervention to children in your setting.
All our Makaton Workshops are delivered by qualified Regional Tutors.
