Due to current social distancing rules I am unable to provide any face-to-face Makaton training at present. I am currently offering online Makaton Workshops Levels 1 & 2 via Zoom
I am able to offer Makaton training flexibly, at times and venues to suit you. I can work with you to provide Makaton training which meets your needs.
The best way to start learning Makaton is to attend a workshop. It means that you learn with other people, share your experiences, receive feedback on your signing and symbol work and enables you to practise with others. It also gives you the opportunity to meet and build a relationship with a Makaton Tutor, who can help and support you in the future.
Attending a workshop is useful for parents/carers as well as professionals who support children and adults with communication difficulties in education, health and leisure settings.
Makaton training is also useful for business and community groups who want to welcome and support those children and adults who use Makaton.
All Makaton training provides you with information about what Makaton is and how it can be used in different settings. It can only be delivered by a qualified and licensed Makaton Tutor. You also learn signs and symbols from the Core Vocabulary to an appropriate level. The Core Vocabulary has the signs and symbols needed for everyday communication.
