Makaton Level 1
May 12 @ 9:30 am – 5:30 pm
Today over 100,000 children and adults use Makaton symbols and signs, either as their main method of communication or as a way to support speech. Please note this course will be held over 2 dates. Both course dates must be attended in order to complete the course. This training builds on the knowledge gained in the level 1 training. Participants will learn the signs and symbols from stages 3 and 4 and the rest of the additional stage of the core vocabulary. This covers a variety of things including action words, animals, people, familiar places, food items and many more. There is a lunch break included in this full day course.

My name is Sarah Arthur and I live in Grimsby, North East Lincolnshire. I am a licensed Makaton Tutor and a Mum of 2 children. I have also worked in primary school for 8 years with a particular interest in communication and speech and language development.
I first started learning Makaton in 2015 when I started working with children with additional needs in a mainstream school. I began looking at ways I could help develop their language skills and developed a love of learning Makaton. I soon went on to complete all levels, before going on to become a licensed tutor. I am passionate about Makaton, spreading awareness and helping to provide inclusion for Makaton users in the wider community. I have taught a range of parents, carers and professionals and also run a Makaton club for children of mixed abilities in a mainstream primary setting. I enjoy creating resources to help engage children in activities with use of Makaton and enjoy putting Makaton into song!
