Makaton training


Our local PCT has withdrawn all support for training Makaton to staff who deal with learning disabilities. I have a group of apprentices who need to know about Makaton and its basics. Are there any Makaton trainers out there who could deliver a session (or more) to staff? Sessions will be run in the North East of England.

    Do try the Makaton Charity –

    I don’t have direct experience of them – so can’t offer a definitive recommendation – but they are the experts in this field. Their open programmes are mostly in the midlands, south and wales but I’m sure they could quote you a price to come to you.

    hi, thanks for replying. I tried them first but all their contacts were from the PCT’s and wouldn’t/couldn’t cross borders. I did get some info from a kind company, but none of the local tutors contacted me. I may have to give up on this one. Once again, many thanks for your time.

  3. Different angle

    Have you tried approaching a local school or care centre for children with learning difficulties ?

    They may be able to point you in a direction or possibly offer something that isn’t from a "trainer" as such – but will do the job


    If you could possibly e-mail me with details :

    Your name & contact details, where the students are based and numbers, I can assist you in this area.

    Please e-mail me [email protected] and we shall see what we can do to assist.


    Kind regards Danny
