Our Makaton Enhancement Workshop will take place on Thursday 20th and 27th June and 4th July at Seashell Trust, near Stockport.

This has been specifically designed for people who have successfully completed the Foundation workshop and want to further build their skills and knowledge of Makaton. It will concentrate on improving and developing signing and symbol skills.  You will learn translation skills using signs and symbols.

Sessions examine the assessment of users’ needs, adapting communication to suit an individual’s needs and how to develop communication skills.  You will revise the signs and symbols you learned on the Foundation Workshop and learn the signs and symbols for Stages 5-8 of the Core Vocabulary.

The Enhancement Workshop will again be led by Kate Duggan, Seashell Trust’s Speech and Language Therapy Lead.  Kate appears in this short video about Makaton for CBeebies:
