Makaton Taster Session

If you are not sure whether Makaton training is for you, try a Makaton Taster session.  This short session is designed for people who are interested in finding out about Makaton and deciding whether or not to attend Makaton training.

The Taster gives you a general introduction into what Makaton is and who uses it, with the opportunity to learn a few signs and symbols too. The sessions are fun, interactive and a great way to learn some of the core vocabulary.

Participants receive handouts covering the vocabulary they have learned and general information regarding further Makaton training and Makaton resources.

Please be aware this is the Taster Session only. 

This in-person course will have a max of 20 attendees.

The course will run 10.30am-12pm and there will be lunch provided afterwards as well as time for questions for the in-person course. When booking, please do let me know of any dietary requirements. Bookings close a week before the event to allow planning.

We apologise – but these courses are not suitable for children and there is no childcare available.
