Introduction to Makaton


What is the event?

Makaton is a language programme that uses signs and symbols, alongside speech, to enable people to communicate. It has been developed to support essential communication skills, such as attention and listening, comprehension, memory, recall and organisation of language and expression.

This introductory workshop will provide you with an overview of Makaton and who uses it, and you will learn over 30 key signs and symbols. Following the workshop you will receive email handouts of the signs and symbols learnt and a certificate of completion.

Please note this workshop is funded by Reaching Families for parents and carers of children with special educational needs and/or disabilities in West Sussex only. It is not suitable for professionals.
