We were very pleased to award a grant to Manland Primary (Harpenden) Makaton training across the school staff, manuals, resources and membership of Makaton.org and also Downs’s Syndrome training for two staff.
Manland have a number of children with communication issues and have a new starter who largely communicates with Makaton. As Cally Arbury, School Business Manager, explained in her bid:
“We believe the whole school will benefit from the training and resources. Our teachers will be able to model Makaton to all children, who in turn, will be able to use it with children with communication needs in our school. We have already seen two pupils in Reception and Year 1 communicate with each other using Makaton and we believe extra training and resources will be a great investment for the future for any pupils for communication needs.”
