Want to learn Makaton but not sure where to start? Here are 10 signs to get you started from Zen Educate!
Makaton is a communication tool that uses signs, speech and symbols. Not to be confused with British Sign Language, Makaton enables some people with disabilities – including children with SEN – to communicate.
Makaton lends itself well to classrooms with children with SEN or English as an additional language, as well as Early Years settings. If you're a teacher or Teaching Assistant and don't currently have any Makaton signs in your locker, we've got you covered with these 10 signs for beginners.
Now let's get started!
