Makaton Sign Sharing For Babies Workshops

We are going to be running a new six-week block of free Makaton Sign Sharing For babies workshops. The next block will start on 31st August.

The groups are led by Katy Lironi, Down’s Syndrome Scotland Makaton Tutor and ABC (Achieving Better Communication) tutor. The sessions are for parents and carer members with their babies of up to 1 year old. Sessions incorporate Makaton sign sharing, oral motor exercises and songs with Makaton. It is hoped babies can join in the sessions, but don’t worry if they fall asleep or need fed during the session, there is plenty still to be learned!

You can book these sessions via Hub 21, if you are not yet a member or would like more information please email

All sessions are recorded, if you are unable to commit to the day or timeslot and would like to access the sessions via these recordings please contact

All of our online sessions comply with our Online Safeguarding policy, this can be accessed here, please take the time to read this policy prior to your session if you have any questions we are more than happy to answer them.
