Family Makaton Workshop

After listening to our parents,  we realised that Makaton training was at the top of their list of things to learn to support their children's communication development. Gemma, our Assistant Head Teacher for Early Years and Key Stage One, is our in- house Makaton tutor and she was pleased to offer a beginner's taster session for those parents who were interested.

Our first Makaton session held on May 5th  was a great success!  We had 12 parents from across the school who all did really well.  Not only did they learn how to sign to their children, but they also had a great time.

We want to repeat this beginners course again later in the year for new parents, as well as have follow-up sessions for those parents who have all ready attended.

What else would you like training in? Would you like to attend the next Makaton course?  Let us know what we can do to help you and your child at home.
