About the Course: 

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.    

Criteria – participants must have an interest in communication skills. 

The £32 materials fee will provide you with two workshop manuals, which include the signs and symbols that you have learned.
