The Language Program MAKATON is an original language program that provides a systematic multi-sensory approach to learning communication skills, speech, writing and reading. Aimed primarily at children and adults with communication and learning difficulties.
The main objective of this alternative mode of communication is the understanding of speech and speech through the use of symbols. Words and concepts are identified with specific symbols and the child learns that it uses to communicate with its environment.
The MAKATON method can be applied by a speech therapy or occupational therapy.
