in finding out more about Makaton with the opportunity to learn a

few signs and symbols too. Participants receive handouts covering

the vocabulary they have learned and general information

regarding further Makaton training and Makaton resources.

The Makaton Safeguarding Workshop is designed to support professionals and carers of children and adults with severe communication and learning disabilities. The workshop builds on existing knowledge of signs and symbols and provides instruction for extra signs and symbols specific to this area of need and access to further resources.

Participants are invited to consider differing protocols and practice. Activities of the workshop will enable participants to consider how the vocabulary may be safely applied to promote communication for people who use Makaton within a range of levels and contexts.

This unique workshop provides signs and symbols for a range of vocabulary covering a number of topics:

  • People: family, relationships and people around us

  • Body parts and clothes

  • Places

  • Feelings: feelings, thoughts and behaviours (including bullying and abuse)

  • Sexual behaviour
