Makaton Tutor _2_ (1).jpg

I've been a Makaton Regional Tutor for over thirty four years! I teach a wide range of Makaton workshops and offer communication support in other areas.


Possibly one of the longest serving Makaton tutors ever, it has played a very important part in my personal and professional life over many decades. 

I started my journey becoming involved with my local Deaf Community, learning the early stages in British Sign Language, (BSL). Then I found Makaton, and started using it with individuals I was working with in the late 1980s. I saw the incredible difference using Makaton made, the improvement in communication and reduction in anxiety for all.

From there, I became a Makaton Tutor, and my journey sharing my passion began.
