Makaton

 

Makaton is a language programme using signs and symbols to help people to communicate. It is designed to support spoken language and the signs and symbols are used with speech, in spoken word order.

The Makaton Friendly scheme recognises local organisations and businesses that strive to make their services accessible to children and adults who use Makaton.

Rocklands School is proud to be recognised as 'Makaton Friendly'.

 

For more information, visit the Makaton website: https://www.makaton.org/

 

Donna Millais is Rocklands' Makaton Accredited Regional Tutor.
