Discovering Communication

Communication can be verbal and non-verbal. People can use various modes to ensure their message is understood e.g. speech, hand movements or gestures, facial expression, eye contact, body language (posture and movement).

Makaton is an effective multi-modal approach which uses speech with signs (gestures) and symbols (pictures) to help people communicate.  It also uses facial expression, eye contact and body language to give as much information as possible. Makaton is a language programme that supports the development of communication skills.

By participating in Makaton Training you are developing your skills and knowledge, gaining insight into the world of Makaton and helping to break down communication barriers.

I will help you to make Makaton signs and symbols relevant in your home or work environment, so that it can become a fantastic supportive tool. This training will help to make language visual which is an incredible bonus to visual learners.
