Makaton Enhancement Workshop

The Enhancement Workshop (Makaton training for professionals) concentrates on improving and developing participants’ signing and symbol skills.  Participants will learn translation skills using signs and symbols. Further theory is also discussed, including how to assess users’ needs, adapt communication to suit an individual’s needs, and develop users’ communication skills.  Participants will revise the signs and symbols learned in the Foundation Workshop, and learn the signs and symbols for Stages 5-8 of the Core Vocabulary. This course is delivered over six 3-hour modules. Please note, you must be able to show your Certificate of Attendance from a Makaton Foundation Workshop before attending this course.
