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.
