in addition to the Core Vocabulary workshops, we provide the following specialist workshops and sessions:
Makaton Signing for Babies (MSB)
For parents, family members or carers who would like to sign with babies and children in their care and have no previous experience of Makaton. These sessions are designed for you and your child to have fun and learn together.
Using Makaton with Singing
A fun and easy way to learn to use signs with singing for young children. Signing and singing have been shown to encourage the development of communication and language skills and are beneficial for vocalisation, confidence, social skills, emotional development, well-being and self-esteem.
Designed to support professionals and carers of children and adults with severe communication and learning disabilities. The workshop builds on existing knowledge of signs and symbols and provides instruction for extra signs and symbols specific to this area of need and access to further resources.
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 training.
