The Core Vocabulary is the starting point for everyone learning Makaton. Makaton® is used extensively all over the UK in pre-school, schools, centres, hospitals, clinics and in the homes of people with severe communication and learning difficulties. This A4 book contains all the signs used with the Makaton Core Vocabulary (Stages 1 to 8 and Additional). It contains vocabulary that is essential for use in everyday life. It is organised into specific categories:
- Early Stages contain the signs and symbols for immediate needs such as "drink", "eat" and "home".
This is often used as a "go to" reference tool to reinforce learning and also support use of signs following attendance at a Beginners’ or Foundation Workshop.
Makaton® Symbols and Signs are matched to all the concepts in the Makaton® Vocabulary to be used with speech, the written word or on their own. They provide a visual representation of language which increases understanding and makes expressive communication easier.
