Makaton Signing For Babies

 

What is Makaton Signing for Babies?
Makaton Signing for Babies is a fun, easy way to learn to sign with your child. It is a series of sessions run by a qualified Makaton Tutor supported by volunteer helpers. The trainer and most of the volunteer helpers all have a child with Down Syndrome and have used Makaton with their own children.
