John Laing Training develop and deliver a range of training programmes to suit a variety of learners, businesses and industries. On the face of it you wouldn’t think they have much use for Makaton. However, appearances can be deceptive...

Story
Tagline
Makaton uses signs and symbols to teach communication, language and literacy skills to people with communication and learning difficulties.
Introduction

Makaton is a language programme using signs and symbols to help people communicate.

Signs are used, with speech, in spoken word order. Using signs can help people who have no speech or whose speech is unclear.

Symbols can be used to support communication in many different ways. Using symbols can help people who have limited speech and those who cannot, or prefer not to sign.

Today over 100,000 children and adults, use Makaton symbols and signs, either as their main method of communication or as a way to support speech.
 
The Makaton Charity is responsible for developing and sharing the Makaton Language Programme.
*** We provide training to parents, carers and professionals, via our nationwide network of licensed tutors and trainers.
*** We develop and produce a wide range of printed and electronic resources, from nursery rhyme DVDs to vocabulary books covering complex subjects such as bereavement and electronic collections of signs and symbols for computer use.
   
*** We work with others to make information accessible.
   
*** We offer advice and support to families and professionals.
   
*** We work in partnership to influence society and empower people.
