Special Educational Needs and Disabilities - Information Report

Support for Children with SEND


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.
