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. For those who experience the frustration of being unable to communicate meaningfully or effectively, Makaton really can help them.

Helen Lewis, Care Supervisor of Bluebird Care Stafford said
The training was enjoyed by all who attended.  The group had fun and more importantly, we all learnt a great deal for a one-day-session.  It is something that will most definitely be extremely useful with certain customers.
A huge thank you to Amanda for holding such an interesting and fun session.  Here are some pictures of the training……
