I'm Jo and I'm a Makaton Tutor.
Makaton is a communication system which uses signs made with your hands, simple symbols and speech to help people communicate.
Today over 100,000 people in the UK with communication difficulties use Makaton signs and symbols to help them communicate, either as an alternative means of communication or to support their speech.
I teach Makaton to people who interact with Makaton users - parents, caregivers, education, healthcare professionals, staff working in the leisure and retail sectors, and anyone who comes into contact with children and adults with communication difficulties.
Getting started with Makaton is fun and easy, and once you've started, you'll soon want to learn more.
I look forward to helping you start or continue your Makaton journey soon.
