Participants will also learn about what the Makaton Language Programme is, how it can be used in different settings and its relationship to Sign Languages and other alternative and augmentative communication systems (AACs).

The workshop is delivered online in real time and takes around 7½ hours.

Learners receive a Participants Manual to support their learning during the workshop and use as a reference going forward, along with additional digital resources and a videos of the Makaton/BSL finger-spelling alphabet.  Each learner will receive a certificate of attendance upon completion.
