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!
Price is £85.00 per person per participant (if Level 1 and 2 are booked together its a combined booking fee of £160 per person) Book on Makaton in the Community
