Makaton resources teach Education students a thing or two

Makaton ResourcesDonations to the Alumni Fund will benefit students across a range of programmes with the School of Education by providing improved Makaton resources.

Makaton is a unique language programme used to teach communication, language and literacy skills through signs, symbols and speech.

Jackie Scruton, lecturer and Makaton trainer, said: "The use of Makaton within schools, colleges and the wider community has proved to have a beneficial effect on children and young people being able to lead independent lives. The development of teaching Makaton within the School of Education is a new and innovative development that will enable our students to be more prepared for the workplace."
