Together We Shine


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.


In addition to children and adults with communication and learning difficulties and the community around them – for example, teachers, health professionals, friends, public service bodies etc. Makaton is increasingly used by the general public to aid communication.


These are some useful sites that can help you and your child on the journey to communication.
