Makaton Taster

< Back to all Events

  • This event has passed.

Makaton uses speech along with gestures and pictures to communicate. Eye contact, body language and facial expressions are also used to help improve communication.

Research has shown that gestures are easier to learn than spoken words, which can help non-verbal people or those whose speech is unclear.

Children and adults can use Makaton to let others know what they want, make choices and share information. This helps to build and develop important communication and language skills.

Our Makaton Taster course is great for those who wish to learn the basics of using signs and symbols for communication. The course is delivered by a Makaton Tutor who is part of Seashell’s Speech and Language Therapy Outreach Team.

Cost: £10

The course is delivered remotely.
