Makaton is a language programme using signing, speech and symbols to provide a basic means of communication and encourage language and literacy development in children and adults with communication and learning difficulties. We offer a two-day Beginner’s Workshop and two-day Follow-up Workshops throughout the county, all taught by Tigger Pritchard, a Makaton® accredited trainer. Workshops are suitable for family members, carers and workers who need to use Makaton at home or in the workplace. Students receive a Makaton certificate upon completion. Course fee includes cost of Makaton Manuals.

Makaton workshops are due to take place in Truro, Liskeard, St Austell, Penzance and Redruth.
