Makaton is one of the most successful and practical communication tools used to support people with learning disabilities.
It helps to develop and maintain communication, improves understanding, reduces stress and behaviour which challenges – and, for signing, all you need is your hands, so you will always have it with you! The symbol system is widely used in schools, so familiar to adults; it uses simple line drawings to represent words- so is a great support for people with literacy difficulties.
Our qualified Regional Makaton Tutors deliver Taster, Beginner, Foundation and Enhancement workshops
You can find out more about the different levels of Makaton Training on the Makaton Charity Website
We also offer tailored creative Makaton-based courses, focused on your communication needs and interests. Whenever possible, we try to involve the experts – people with understanding and speaking difficulties, so we offer the option of training staff and customers together.
We’re sorry but there are currently no vacancies on upcoming courses. We’ll let you know when more opportunities come up as soon as possible!
