BHT Early Education and Training's Makaton Sign and Symbol enhancement course will improve signing and translation skills to a highly fluent level, and will look at the application of signs and symbols, which will support the children you are working with using Makaton. This course is ideal for teachers and practitioners who work in Early Years / Foundation Stage, or those working within specialist provision, supporting children with communication difficulties.
This course is delivered over three full days by our Makaton Tutor.
The course will improve and develop your own signing skills using signs and symbols. You will re-visit the signs and symbols introduced in the Foundation Workshop, and will learn an additional 200 signs and symbols to complete the Core Vocabulary.
Prerequisite – you must have attended the two day Foundation Workshop prior to booking, and participants should be fluent at stages 1-4 of the Core Vocabulary and be using Makaton daily.
Please contact us for cost details.
BHT is a place where my child and I feel welcomed, valued and at home. The practitioners show that they are very educated, professional and friendly through interactions with myself and my child. By reviewing my child’s development with her key person, it is clear of the benefit nursery has on her education and the interactions she has with others.
Many thanks, you are a great team.
The guidance I receive at BHT makes a huge impact on the development of my daughter. I value the importance of sharing interests and strategies to give my child the best early years education possible. This shows through the most recent monitoring documents completed, as she is ahead in all stages of development.
