Parent/Carer: Makaton Level 1
Friday 21st January 2022
9:30 am - 2:30 pm
Would you like to support your child to communicate using signs and symbols?
Join us for our workshop in learning Makaton at Level 1 delivered by Makaton Tutors.
You will learn what Makaton is and why it helps with communication. Signs and symbols are taught for vocabulary that helps:
- Communicate immediate needs
- Establish interaction
- Users connect with other people and the world around them
- Core vocabulary including objects and food
We discuss where Makaton fits in with British Sign Language and offer effective tips for signing. There is also space to learn more about Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC).
The workshop will be a great way to practise skills in a safe environment.
You will receive a Level 1 workshop manual including all the signs and symbols learnt, plus lots of useful information together with a certificate of attendance.
The cost for Level 1 is £30 per person for Parents & Carers.
For professionals it is £60 per person.
The workshop will be on Friday 21st January 2022, 09:30am – 14:30pm at Virginia House Centre.
We strongly recommend that you also book onto Level 2 as this will enhance your learning and experience, and help you get the most out of these sessions:
For this session, we kindly ask parents to attend without their children.
