 ‘Every Child and Young Person in the Rother Valley Matters’

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.


With Makaton, children and adults can communicate straight away using signs and symbols. Many people then drop the signs or symbols naturally at their own pace, as they develop speech.For those who have experienced the frustration of being unable to communicate meaningfully or effectively, Makaton really can help.


Makaton takes away that frustration and enables individuals to connect with other people and the world around them, which opens up all kinds of possibilities.
