Makaton is a unique language programme that uses symbols, signs and speech to enable people to communicate. It supports the development of essential communication skills such as attention and listening, comprehension, memory, recall and organisation of language and expression.

We use Makaton signs in many of the songs we sing at Steps, supporting the development of essential communication skills such as attention and listening, comprehension, memory, recall and organisation of language and expression.


The Makaton Charity have a range of free resources to download from The Makaton Library
