Introduction to Makaton – Grimsby
17 June @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm£30
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. Makaton helps develop communication before language development, which also helps to underpin attention and memory skills and comprehension and thinking skills. It also helps to develop literacy and language skills and can be used alongside books to build on pre-literacy and literacy skills.
You will learn around 40 signs and symbols from the Makaton core vocabulary through different game and activities, you’ll receive the signs and symbols from the training and a certificate.
