Makaton- learn signs to help support your child's communication

Makaton is a visual way to develop communication skills, which helps stimulate sounds and words. This visual way of communicating in turn helps to encourage language development, i.e. putting words together. Makaton helps understanding, giving the child or adult an extra visual clue.

At St James we use Makaton as soon as they enter our school in the nursery class. At such an early age developing communication skills for all is key. This is continued with key words in reception for those who need it.
