Makaton uses signs, symbols, and speech to help people communicate. Signs are used, with speech, in spoken word order. Using signs can help people who have no speech or whose speech is unclear. Using symbols can help people who have limited speech and those who cannot, or prefer not to, sign.

This course is recommended for parents/carers using Makaton in their environment, or anyone looking to gain a comprehensive introduction to signing.

The main learning objectives of the course are as follows:

  1. To gain a detailed introduction, through the foundation workshop, to the Makaton Vocabulary Signs and Symbols from Core Vocabulary Stages
  2. To develop an understanding of how and why Makaton works, and an overview of alternative systems of communication
  3. To gain an outline of around 280 signs and symbols, and practice using them in everyday situations

This course meets the Training, Support, and Development Standards as outlined in The Fostering Services (England) Regulations 2011.
