The Makaton Charity has launched a new Makaton Workshop called Watch My Needs. This workshop is designed for adults who are beginning to experience difficulties with understanding and recall, after having good understanding, recall and use of language.
The Watch My Needs Workshop is for direct use with adults with memory difficulties, who should attend the workshop sessions with a supporter. This workshop is the first of its kind as it will focus on the Makaton Core user at the centre of the programme, with the aims of promoting independence, gaining confidence in making choices and taking part in daily activities.
The webinar will be presented by the individuals who founded the concept of using Makaton to support memory, along with giving an overview of how the programme works, and case studies of how this wonderful programme has impacted lives and improved quality of life through meeting individuals communication needs.
