What is Makaton

What is Makaton?  Makaton is a language which uses signs and symbols to help children and adults with communication difficulties to express themselves, engage with others, be included in everyday life, take part in education, access information and services and ultimately acheive their full potential.  How is Makaton used?  Makaton uses signs, symbols and speech to help people communicate.  Signs are used with speech, in spoken word order.  Using signs can help people who have no speech or whose speech is unclear.  Symbols can be used to support communication in many different way.
