In place of our usual written monthly blog, we're bringing you our very first vlog! We'd like to say a huge thank you to Senior Makaton tutor Jenny Rathbone who visited our Wiltshire hospice to deliver a training course to our carers. Makaton is a language programme using signs and symbols to help people communicate. It is designed to support spoken language and the signs and symbols are used with speech, in spoken word order.
Being able to communicate this way will open a world of opportunities for both our carers and the children they look after. Watch to see what a difference this will make to life at Julia's House.
