Sign Simply - Grant Wetherall

My name is Grant Wetherall and I qualified as a social worker in 1995 from Brunel University, I have worked as a social worker, manager and consultant for the National Health Service, voluntary and private sectors.


A few words about us

Currently I manage a children’s disability team in the UK. I also write articles about communication systems and social work issues for a number of publications.

I began training in Makaton in 1995 as a means of acquiring skills that would complement my social work. I could see immediately that because the language is so easy to grasp it could quickly and effectively enhance a person’s ability to communicate with learning disabled people.

I fully qualified as a regional tutor 1996 and in the same year set up SignSimply. Out of all the many communication systems that currently exist; I believe that Makaton is probably the most accessible form of communication for people with special needs and the people who interact with them.
