It is designed for use to support spoken language, so the signs and symbols are used with speech, and in spoken word order. It is used by more than 100,000 people in over 40 different countries (Devarakonda, 2012). John-Paul Riordan is a qualified Makaton Regional Tutor and was a school teacher for eighteen years. I am a senior lecturer in Primary Education at Canterbury Christ Church University. The foundation course is for a minimum of 12 people and a maximum of 15, lasts 2 days and gives a detailed introduction to Makaton and half of the ‘core’ vocabulary (called stages 1 to 4). The cost of the workshop includes participant manuals (Modules 1-4), and pocket books of signs and symbols (Stages 1-4 and Additional).
