This confidential service is provided to support families who are thinking about or have been advised to use Makaton, and for professionals who support families.

You can talk, in confidence, to our family advisor, Tracy King, about learning Makaton and using Makaton in daily life.  She can also help you decide which training and books, CDs and other resources are suitable for you and your family.

Or perhaps you just want to talk to someone who understands?  Tracy has considerable experience of using Makaton in the home, as a parent who used Makaton with her own children.

Tracy is also a Makaton Regional Tutor, with extensive experience in supporting Makaton users of all ages, with a wide range of abilities in their use of Makaton.  Tracy can speak with you about encouraging good communication, developing language skills and promoting independence.
