What is Makaton?

A unique language program what uses symbols, signs and speech to enable people to communicate. Being able to communicate is one of the most important skills we need in life. Signs are used alongside speech which helps provide extra clues about what is being said. These signs can help people who have no speech or whose speech is unclear. Makaton takes away the frustration of being able to communicate and enables individuals to connect with other people and the world around them. Click below to learn more.
