21-year-old Chloe, who has been using Makaton to support her
communication since she was a child, has started sharing Makaton on
social media, and in weekly singing and signing sessions.
With the support of Dramatize, a theatrical provision for adults with
learning disabilities, Chloe has launched an Instagram and Facebook
account that shows her followers a sign of the day.
is also building up her skills as a facilitator, leading a singing and
signing class once a week to other Dramatize students.
Working with adults has meant that Chloe has taken what she learnt
from the Makaton “singing with signing” course and applied it to pop
songs to keep it relevant.
Chloe is working towards taking her “Chloe signs” workshops into the community and other provisions.
She says “I like helping my friends. I want everyone to know sign”.
