“The best we can be”

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

Makaton

Makaton uses speech with signs (gestures) and symbols (pictures) to help people communicate.  We also use facial expression, eye contact and body language to give as much information as possible. With Makaton, signs are used with speech in spoken word order. Using signs can help people who have no speech or whose speech is unclear. 

 

As it will be soon for Christmas we will be focussing on Christmas Makaton signs, please view below for the latest ones
