Makaton lead

I have worked within SEND in schools for over 25 years as a Teaching assistant and throughout my practice have used Makaton (a unique language programme that uses symbols, signs and speech to enable people to communicate). At Gibside, I teach pupils Makaton, in addition I train staff to develop their own skills and knowledge in utilising Makaton. I have a passion for Makaton and over the years I have completed the foundation and Enhanced Makaton courses followed by a tutor training course which has enabled me to become a Regional Trainer and allows me to deliver a full package of training.
