An introduction to Makaton Sign-language which can be used by adults and children.

Makaton sign-language  is designed to support spoken language – signs and symbols are used with speech, in spoken word order to help children and adults to communicate.


This helps provide extra clues about what someone is saying. Research has shown that signs and gestures are easier to learn than spoken words. Makaton can be helpful for children or adults of any age, with individual needs or a combination of needs.
