The Perfect Christmas Gift! Makaton Founders Membership

It is fantastic to see so many of you joining the Core Membership. We have received great feedback from many members who are exploring the Makaton Library and making the most of their access to the vocabulary signs, symbols and videos. MakaChat, the exclusive membership community space, has also seen lots of interaction with our knowledgeable Tutors and Ambassadors.

We would like to thank all of you who have supported us by joining the membership offer. As an added benefit for all members who have signed up to the Core membership package, you will now be moved into a Founders Membership category. Anyone who signs up between now and the 31st December will also become a Founder Member, for the same price as Core Membership, £60.

Founders Membership gives access to our Living and Learning vocabulary set, which offers an additional 700 signs and symbol free of charge.

Topics include:

  • Timetable subjects
  • Days of the week
  • Body parts
  • Material
  • Time and seasons
  • Shapes
  • Plants and tree
  • Derbyshire Language Scheme vocabulary

Founders Membership makes the perfect Christmas present that keeps giving support throughout the year. With home-schooling on the rise, this is a great opportunity to ensure you have access to the tools you need.

The Founders Membership  offer lasts until the 31st December 2020.
