Event description
Makaton is a language programme that gives everyone a helping hand to talk and communicate

About this Event

Makaton is a unique language programme that uses symbols, signs and speech to enable people to communicate. It supports the development of essential communication skills such as attention and listening, comprehension, memory, recall and organisation of language and expression.

Almost everything we do involves communication; everyday tasks such as learning at school, asking for food and drink, sorting out problems, making friends and having fun. These all rely on our ability to communicate with each other.

With Makaton, 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.

For those who have experienced the frustration of being unable to communicate meaningfully or effectively, Makaton really can help. Makaton takes away that frustration and enables individuals to connect with other people and the world around them. This opens up all kinds of possibilities.

In this course you will learn:

- How to use Makaton to communicate

- Be able to use all basic signs

- The entire Makaton alphabet

All delegates who complete will receive a certificate of attendance and a Makaton information book and resources.

These Makaton sessions are open to all CNWL stakeholders.
