Makaton

Today over 100,000 children and adults use Makaton symbols and signs, either as their main method of communication or as a way to support speech.

 

In addition to children and adults with communication and learning difficulties and the community around them – for example, teachers, health professionals, friends, public service bodies etc. Makaton is increasingly used by the general public to aid communication.

 

Makaton has been shown to be useful for all sorts of people including those who struggle with understanding concepts, those who have poor literacy skills, including grammatical knowledge, and those with English as an Additional Language. By using Makaton, children and adults can take a more active part in life, because communication and language are the key to everything we do and learn.

 

We are thrilled to be working with Becky George, a highly experienced Makaton ambassador & tutor to bring you some of our most popular songs in Makaton format.
