Makaton Training for parents

By Fiona Wilkins - March 5th, 2024 | Posted in Article

We were pleased to offer a Level 1 Makaton Training workshop for parents at Bedelsford School. A number of parents and carers attended the course that ran over two Monday mornings this term. The group learnt the basics of Makaton, which we use in school to help pupils with communication.

There was time for plenty of practice and the parents were enthusiastic and keen to learn to help extend their vocabulary and knowledge.

All those who attended learnt signs and symbols from Stage 1 and 2 of the Makaton Language programme and practiced using these signs and symbols for everyday conversations. We hope to run a Level 2 course in the near future.

If you are interested in finding out more about Makaton or other training at the school, please speak to Jessica Webb, Assistant Principal at the school.
