Baby Signing Courses
Workshops for Professionals
Makaton is widely used by Early Years Practitioners (childminders, nurseries, schools and other professionals such as Speech and Language Therapists) in the London Borough of Richmond Upon Thames (LBRUT).
As ‘Singing Hands’ we have been working with LBRUT’s Local Education Authority to train increasing numbers of Early Years practitioners interested in singing and signing with all children. We have also run singing and signing workshops for The Childminding Association, The Playgroup Network, The Learning Skills Council (LSC), the Down’s Syndrome Association and the Library Service. We have run sessions as part of a ‘Small Talk’ project promoting early literacy skills funded by the LSC. We continue with our sessions at the Three Wings Trust, MeToo and our local hospices.
If you live too far from us, but are interested in signing workshops in your local area, please contact the Makaton Vocabulary Development Project (MVDP) directly. They will give you a list of local/regional Makaton tutors in your area that will be able to help meet your training needs.
