Makaton is a unique language programme that uses symbols, signs and speech to enable people to communicate. It supports the development of essential communication skills such as attention and listening, comprehension, memory, recall and organisation of language and expression.
Being able to communicate is one of the most important skills we need for life and learning. Why not have a go at learning Ifield School's Core signs as demonstrated by our Speech and Language Therapy Team. Signing as you speak helps provide extra clues about what someone is saying. Using signs can help people who have no speech or whose speech is unclear.
