Makaton Taster

If you are not sure whether Makaton training is for you, try a Makaton Taster session.  These short sessions are designed for people who are interested in finding out about Makaton and deciding whether or not to attend Makaton Workshop training.

The Taster gives you a general introduction into what Makaton is and who uses it, and it gives you the opportunity to learn some Makaton too.  You'll be shown the  signs and symbols for around 30 useful every day words, plus another 12 on a particular theme eg. Holidays or Early Years.

Participants receive handouts covering the vocabulary they have learned and general information regarding further Makaton training and Makaton resources.


1 hour 30 minutes - 2 hours.
