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.

By using Makaton, anyone with communication difficulty can benefit helping them to make choices, form social relationships and help with understanding and expression.
I’m sure Makaton will help the girls in their roles to support their customers with communication.
