Hinckley - Makaton Training Day including Christian Faith Signs, St John's Church, Saturday, 31. October 2020

At last! A Makaton course covering Christian faith signs, songs and activities for using in churches and activity groups.

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. With Makaton, signs are used, with speech, in spoken word order. This helps provide extra clues about what someone is saying. Using signs can help people who have no speech or whose speech is unclear. Using symbols can help people who have limited speech and those who cannot, or prefer not to sign.

(BSL is a separate language used by deaf people that does not rely on spoken words).

The day will cover:

What is Makaton

Why do we use Makaton

Learn stages 1 of Makaton's Core Voacb

Importance of interpretation

Signs we use for faith

Practical singing & signing activities

It doesn't matter if you have done some signing (even BSL) before - this course is for everyone. Becky George the trainer, is a regional Makaton tutor & signed at the ONE festival last year for Livability.

You will leave the training feeling enthused and confident to use Makaton in your setting.

Bring your own lunch and refreshments will be provided.

A certificate will be given to each attendee.

Please get in touch if you have any access requirements, including sensory adaptations.

Children under 16 are not able to attend.
