The Makaton Vocabulary is a language programme which provides a basic means of communication and encourages language development in children and adults who have communication problems relating to learning difficulties or other disabilities.

It is in widespread use in this country and, increasingly, abroad. In the UK, the signs used have been selected from British Sign Language.
