At Edwalton we are learning Makaton sign language.
Makaton is a language programme using signs and symbols to help people to communicate. It is designed to support spoken language and the signs and symbols are used with speech, in spoken word order.
Makaton is regularly used in mainstream schools, to support all children to develop communication, language and literacy skills. It is also supports integration, as children with and without language difficulties can communicate with each other, learn and play together more easily.
The signs we are learning will be posted on our website but if you would like to learn more about Makaton please follow this link: www.makaton.org
