Learn how to communicate using Makaton
Makaton is a unique language programme that uses symbols, signs and speech to enable people to communicate.
Who can Makaton help?
Makaton can help children and adults who have difficulty with:
- Communicating what they want, think or how they feel
- Making themselves understood
- Paying attention
- Listening to and understanding speech
- Remembering sequencing
Makaton is a visual way to develop communication skills which helps to stimulate sounds and words. This in turn encourages language development (i.e. putting words together) - Makaton aids understanding by giving you an extra visual clue to what’s being expressed.
