Makaton is a language programme that uses hand signs and symbols to help people communicate. It is used with a range of children and adults including
• Children learning early language and literacy skills in mainstream schools and nursery settings.
• Children and adults experiencing communication difficulties.
• People learning an additional language including children learning English as an additional language.
• Older adults who are experiencing communication difficulties e.g. those with dementia.

The best way to start using Makaton is to attend a workshop. In this Foundation Workshop we will learn approximately 280 signs and symbols and learn how the Makaton multi-modal communication system can be used in the most effective way. The workshop is designed for professionals but can also be useful for parents and carers who are interested in using Makaton. These sessions are fun and interactive and the activities are designed to give plenty of practice signing to help you gain confidence.
This workshop is set in four modules that will be covered over four twilight sessions. All necessary study materials and workshop manuals are provided. Attendees will receive an accredited certificate of completion from the Makaton Charity.
