A group for anyone who uses, or is interested in using Makaton.

I am a Regional Tutor for Makaton and couldn't believe there didn't seem to a Makaton Meetup group already running! In an ideal world I see this group as providing somewhere for people to learn, practise and chat using Makaton in an informal, social setting.

Makaton is a language programme using signs and symbols to help people with speech and language difficulties to communicate. For more information about the Makaton language programme please visit the charity website at https://www.makaton.org/

As for this group... it is just like any other meetup group for those with an interest in a particular language, except that instead of having the opportunity to be surrounded by French or Japanese speakers, this will be an opportunity to be surrounded by Makaton users.  Through my work I have realised there is a real lack of support and opportunities for people to both practise and speak to people with language difficulties.
