This full day session will look at signs from Makaton Core Vocabulary. The course will cover stories, nursery rhymes and functional vocabulary for early years taught in a practical and relaxed environment.
Led by Makaton Regional Tutors
The course aims to:
- provide functional vocabulary to support children’s communication; - raise awareness of ways in which we communicate; - support practitioners in their accuracy and delivery of Makaton signs; - use Makaton signs in sentences, practice signing conversations, support recall and recognition of vocabulary; - implement Makaton in familiar stories and nursery rhymes.
Participants will be emailed signs delivered after the training course so that they have them to use electronically within their settings.
Refreshments throughout the day are provided but lunch is not provided.
