Licensed Makaton Tutor

Licensed Makaton Tutor

I am a fully qualified regional Makaton tutor and have taught over 3,000 people this unique language programme over the past 26 years.  

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.

I have worked as a senior social worker for the United Kingdom health service for twenty-seven years primarily with children with special needs and vulnerable adults. I found that the Makaton language was a vital tool which enabled connection when other forms of communication were not possible. 

Makaton is easy to learn – and fun!
