Today over 100,000 children and adults use Makaton symbols and signs, either as their main method of communication or as a way to support speech.
We are very lucky to have a qualified Makaton trainer at Portesbery, Jo in our Post 16 Department. She have teamed up Afreen in Grasshopper class (who is a very talented illustrator) to produce weekly drawings of common Makaton words and phrases.
These will be added to this photo gallery (and Facebook) every week during term-time.
You can learn more about Makaton and other strategies used to support our curriculum here.
