My Makaton Journey

I am a former Speech and Language Therapist with over twenty five years' experience at a specialist level supporting adults with a learning disability and communication impairment. I retired from Speech and Language Therapy in 2017 and am now an approved Makaton Regional Tutor. In my former role I had considerable experience providing Makaton workshops, as well as teaching and using Makaton signs and symbols with children and adults with communication needs.

I  firmly believe that all children and adults with a learning or communication impairment should be able to access the same services and facilities as everyone else and my desire is to see Makaton being used effectively across every sphere of life. I am dedicated to supporting people with communication needs by providing quality Makaton training to parents, carers, professionals, services and businesses across Northern Ireland.
