Who is this event for
For all Early Years practitioners in Settings and Childminders working with children aged 0 - 5.
What does this event cover
An introduction to this system of supporting early years communication with gesture. This has been found especially useful with a range of children, especially those with special educational needs. More recently, the use of signing has been found to be very successful with young babies learning to communicate.

Participants will use basic signs from Stages 1 and 2 and additional vocabulary. Each participant will be given a manual containing the Makaton signs and symbols that have been taught during the course.
