The Makaton Charity advises as follows regarding overseas applications to join UK Makaton courses:
In theory, you can access the online Makaton training from anywhere in the world, but please bear in mind that British Makaton uses signs drawn from British Sign Language. When Makaton is used in other countries it needs to be adapted to suit the local culture and dominant spoken and signed languages. Unless spoken English and British Makaton are the dominant language and alternative/augmentative communication (AAC) methods are used where you are (eg. in an English-speaking International school community), you might find it counter-productive and confusing for people. At the moment we only have printed versions of the workshop participant’s manuals available so you would need to pay additional postage for this and allow extra time for it to reach you.
This course can be delivered live using Zoom or Face-to-Face.
