About this event:
Makaton Taster Workshop with Dawn McMullan-Cooper from Peter Piper Picked Speech and Language Therapy, hosted by Allsorts.
Dawn McMullan-Cooper is a Specialist Speech and Language Therapist who graduated in 1990 and is a Makaton Tutor and Ambassador for the Makaton Charity who runs regular Makaton sign language courses within Gloucestershire.
Makaton is a multi-modal language programme that uses signs, symbols and speech for children and adults with speech, language and communication needs to build on their understanding and use of speech and language.
If you are new to Makaton, not sure if it is suitable for your child, or even have used it in the past and want a refresher, this taster session is for you!
Children of all ages with additional needs can benefit from improved communication skills, which in turn often reduces frustration for the whole family.
