Foundation in Makaton
This is a two-day course giving you a level 1 and 2 in Makaton. These are great skills for any therapist wanting to offer diverse services.
Makaton, although originally designed for children and adults with learning difficulties, is now used in helping people with a wide range of communication, speech, language and literacy difficulties, including helping babies, toddlers, and children whose first language is not English.
The foundation workshop provides a detailed introduction to the Makaton vocabulary, signs and symbols from Core Vocabulary Stages one-four, and additional vocab.
Research into sign use, symbols design themes, the use and purpose of Makaton, and an overview of alternative systems of communication.
Suitable for anyone who wants a comprehensive introduction to signing - parents and professionals. No signing experience needed.
