Makathon Training

31 May 2022

As part of our ongoing commitment to making Scouting inclusive and accessible to all 16 volunteers undertook a taster session for Makaton this week supported by a Makaton charity certified trainer, Debbie.

Makaton uses speech with signs (gestures) and symbols (pictures) to help people communicate who have limited speech.

Feedback from the session was really positive and we all came away having learnt some new skills to support our young people with additional needs.

“Debbie is a fantastic teacher, i feel so much more confident now, and i am looking forward to doing the full training course when it becomes available” Claire Cooke- Beaver Leader (1st Basingstoke (Trinity Methodist)

If you were unable to make the session on the 30th May but would be interested if we ran other session then please contact by the end of June.
