Following the popularity of Rachel Holt’s article in the last issue of R.I.S.E. about being more inclusive with Makaton, here she shows us how it’s done!

In this short video, Rachel starts by giving us an overview of Makaton and why it is important. She then shows us some Level 1 signs and symbols and walks us through how to sign correctly – a taster session of Makaton for our R.I.S.E. readers!
