As part of our festivities at MacIntyre, we have been collecting films from different groups, services and teams performing Christmas songs and jokes, signed using Makaton.
What is Makaton?
Makaton is a language programme using signs and symbols to help people to communicate, designed to support spoken language. The signs and symbols are used with speech, in spoken word order.
In the run up to Christmas, we’ll be sharing different films for you to enjoy. The first one we’d like to share is a performance of ‘Merry Christmas, Everyone!’ from Milton Keynes Lifelong Learning.
If you would like to find out any more about Makaton, please visit the Makaton website or contact our Facilitations Advisor, Gwenne McFadzean, to find out how we use Makaton at MacIntyre by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
