We are delighted with the feedback from the Makaton online courses delivered with such enthusiasm by highly knowledgeable and experienced UK accredited Makaton trainer Karen Soehnle.
Makaton is a unique language programme that uses symbols, signs and speech to enable people to communicate and it supports the development of essential communication skills such as attention and listening, comprehension, memory, recall and organisation of language and expression. Karen showed the relevance of this form of communication.
Karen is passionate about the needs of effective communication as a basis of wellbeing and learning for all children. Karen advocates the use of Makaton to unlock the potential of all children and support successful inclusion. The interactive informative courses enable participants to learn a core vocabulary that will allow them to support good communication with all young children and especially those with English as a Second Language or those with communication needs or delays.
‘I love every bits of it actually Miss Karen was amazing .I would definitely use what I learned in two days. She is amazing, I can see how passionate she is in her chosen career. Bless her’
