Makaton uses speech with signs (gestures) and symbols (pictures) to help people communicate. We also use facial expression, eye contact and body language to give as much information as possible.
If you are interested in finding out about Makaton, a customised taster session can be arranged to provide an introduction to Makaton, including a basic range of signs and symbols.
