In this workshop we will learn in brief what the Makaton Language Programme is and how it will support communication with a wide range of children, young people and adults that have special communication needs.
We will learn a helpful range of signs and how to use visual aids to promote and sustain basic social communication and a further range of special signs and visual aids to use in catachesis.
The workshop will be mostly practical and fun with a small number of micro presentations to provide the underpinning theory.
There will be individual and group work.
All necessary resources will be provided and access to ongoing support from the Makaton Tutor, Mike Harris, who will deliver the workshop.Lunch will also be included in the fee of £90
