Makaton uses signs, symbols and speech to help people communicate. Signs are used, with speech, in spoken word order. This helps provide extra clues about what someone is saying. Using signs can help people who have no speech or whose speech is unclear. Using symbols can help people who have limited speech and those who cannot, or prefer not to sign.
This interactive day-long workshop will include the Makaton Taster Workshop so perfect if you are a complete beginner or want a refresh.
Participants will be introduced to what Makaton is, how it works and will learn signs from stage 1 of the vocabulary as well as some additional signs and symbols.
All participants will receive a certificate approved by the Makaton charity.
The cost of this workshop is £5.
