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.  We at Heatherwood believe that Makaton is powerful tool that can unlock communication for some students and therefore advocate its use in school. 

We have a range of resources that you may find helpful linking to core vocabulary, school topics or just for fun.
