Makaton Signing for Babies and Beyond
A 6 week course for parents/carers and children to enhance their communication through using Makaton. Each session comprises of teaching signs/symbols to the adults, engaging children in activities and song and time to talk.
Makaton is a language programme using speech, signs and symbols to enhance communication. Research has shown that it can help both babies typically acquiring language and those that need a little extra help. Makaton can help babies, children and adults with a range of communication and learning needs including Autistic Spectrum Conditions, Down Syndrome, where English is an additional language, following strokes or dementia and where there are difficulties with understanding, processing or expressive language
