MAKATON Core Vocabulary Symbols Book
The Core Vocabulary is the starting point for everyone learning Makaton®. This A4 sized book contains all of the symbols used with the Core Vocabulary (Stages 1 to 8 Additional).
The book is often used as the "go to" reference point for all users of Makaton®, and as limited photocopying is allowed (for individual use only), it can be used as a resource to create all sorts of essential tools such as timetables, shopping lists, labels, stories, games etc.
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. Designed in eight progressive stages reflecting usage and need, the Makaton® Core Vocabulary also provides a huge bank of "additional" concepts.
A USB stick (item code 56852) is now available of the signs to be used in association with the Symbolss Book. The Signs book is also available using item code 50206.
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.
