We use makaton at Seedling Nursery 

Makaton is a language programme using hand signs and facial expressions in order to communicate. This visual aid was created in order to aid the understanding of language for children who are unable to communicate through speech. With Makaton, children and adults can communicate straight away using signs and symbols. Many people then drop the signs or symbols naturally at their own pace, as they develop speech. Please watch the video to learn the key signs we use at Seedling Nursery.
