    Hello all,

    I have moved recently to a lovely new primary school and I am wanting to introduce whole school makaton. However, i need to provide some hard research data to prove that it has been tried and tested in other primary schools, and supports educational development.

    I would support any help with this, as makaton is fab!

    Thank you

    No help with the research, but I know both my grandchildren learnt Makaton very early on and the 'ability to be able to communicate' certainly helped them and I'm sure are more balanced at coping with emotions because of that realisation.
