Event Details

Makaton Level 1 and Level 2 combined workshop

Makaton is a language programme, using signs and symbols alongside speech, which can be used with children and adults who need help with communication.

This training course provides a practical introduction to the Makaton language programme.  Sessions will cover commonly asked questions, hints and tips for effective signing and symbol use, and how to start using Makaton in everyday situations at home or work.  You will learn the signs and symbols from stages 1 – 4 and some of the additional stage of the Makaton core vocabulary.  You will receive course manuals with copies of all signs and symbols taught.

This course is for parents, carers, or professionals who want to learn Makaton to support children’s language and communication development.  No previous experience of Makaton is necessary.  The training is provided by licenced Makaton tutors who work in Sunderland as part of the Language & Learning Partnership, or the Speech & Language Therapy team.

The course will be delivered over 4 sessions as follows:

  • Friday 25th June, 9.30am – 12.30pm

  • Friday 9th July, 9.30am – 12.30pm
  • Friday 16th July, 9.30am – 12.30pm

Please note: participants need to be able to attend all 4 sessions.

This course costs £40 for parents of children on the Sunderland Speech and Language Therapy caseload, and £140 for professionals (£100 for professionals working inside the Sunderland area) –  you will receive an invoice following confirmation of your place on the programme.
