Women’s health resource

Would you like to help The Makaton Charity to develop a women’s health resource?

Sarah, a student from Stirling University, has teamed up with one of our Senior Tutors, Shelina Mitha, to carry out an incredibly worthwhile research project to support women in understanding their menstrual cycle. Selina and Sarah have developed resources specifically around this topic, including a social story on growing up and having a period, along with a communication board to support conversations.

They are looking for families who use Makaton who would benefit from this resource, and be willing to be interviewed about their experience over Zoom, to provide feedback. If you are interested in piloting the resource and are willing to take part in a short Zoom interview, please email smayes.makaton@gmail.com for more information. Thank you!
