Our first Learning Event for this academic was a huge success!
The Makaton Taster events held on Thursday 26th October and Saturday 28th October provided participants with a fun and informative introduction to the world of Makaton, a language program that uses signs and symbols to support communication.
We learnt about how Makaton can be used to bridge communication gaps and promote understanding between individuals with and without communication challenges and of course there was a lot of enthusiastic signing!
Attendees left the event with newfound knowledge, the confidence to start integrating Makaton into their daily routines, whether at home or in the classroom, and some Makaton freebies! A big thank you to all that attended and we look forward to hosting more learning events throughout the academic year.
