Makaton Sign Language
Within the nursery, our practisioners use makaton signing when we communicate with children.This helps children to understand language and communicate with adults and their peers. Makaton compliments their speech. At times children find it difficult to express their needs through language, so each term we introduce new Makaton signs for the children and staff to learn.
It could be very useful for parents to use Makaton signing along with spoken words at home to support children who may have any difficulty.
