Helen Adams - Makaton Tutor

Speech and Language Therapist






Hello and welcome to my website .... 

I have been a Regional Makaton Tutor for over 20 years, running Makaton workshops across the North West of England and further afield both for the NHS and on a freelance basis.  Since April 2015 I have had more than 1850 learners on my workshops and over the last three years have supported 30 trainees to become Local or Regional Makaton Tutors or Makaton Signing for Babies Trainers.

I run Makaton workshops at a central venue or at your setting and can tailor-make training sessions around the needs of a particular child or adult.

I run taster sessions for undergraduates at the University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University, Liverpool Hope University, the University of Derby and the University of Cumbria and regularly attract students from a variety of professions on the Foundation workshop.

I am also a practising Speech and Language Therapist and have a comprehensive understanding of speech, language and communication difficulty in children and adults. This enables me to give practical advice to help course participants differentiate their use of Makaton to support individual children/adults with communication problems.

I have practised as a Speech and Language Therapist in the following areas: children and adults with learning disabilities; pre-school and school age children. My practice has been in: North Derbyshire, Macclesfield and Stockport.
