Makaton is a unique language programme that uses symbols, signs, and speech to enable people to communicate. It supports the development of essential communication skills such as attention and listening, comprehension, memory, recall and organisation of language and expression.

Enabling our children to communicate, even without words is very important to us. Each week we teach them simple hand gestures so they can always tell us what they want us to know.

This series of videos shows you some of the signs we use in school.
