Signs Of The Week

Here we will be showing short videos on how you can use the Makaton language programme to communicate various words.

"Makaton is a language programme using signs and symbols to help people to communicate. It is designed to support spoken language and the signs and symbols are used with speech, in spoken word order.

With Makaton, children and adults can communicate straight away using signs and symbols. Many people then drop the signs or symbols naturally at their own pace, as they develop speech." Source: Makaton Website
