Meet our Makaton Tutors

Helen Woodrow

About me:

Hi, I’m Helen and I’ve been a Makaton Tutor for over 20 years. I’ve been teaching Makaton and using it as part of my day to day work with children and adults with learning disabilities for many years. I have lots of experience in supporting people to use Makaton and other forms of alternative and augmentative communication (AAC). I really enjoy sharing my Makaton expertise with other people, so that everyone can learn how to communicate more effectively.

I’m proud to be the Service Director and one of a team of Speech and Language Therapists providing services for Eg Training Ltd, an independent speech and language therapy practice based in The Midlands. Our company provides online and live Makaton training across the U.K. We are happy to deliver bespoke training for your setting so please contact us if this is something you would like to discuss.

Leanne Argyle

About me:

Hi, I’m Leanne, a Speech and Language Therapist and Makaton Tutor at Eg Training Ltd. I have extensive experience in using Makaton with children in school and therapy settings in addition to using Makaton to support communication with adults in care settings. I work with both adults and children with a range of diagnoses including learning disabilities and complex needs.

I am passionate about enabling communication for everybody across all settings. I aim to ensure that the environment is predictable and easy to understand and that everybody can communicate their wishes and be understood. I also love to teach and support others. Being a Makaton Tutor allows me embrace both of these passions, which is great!

Reviews and Feedback

“Information was delivered in a way that it could be practised and important time was allowed for questions, discussion & clarification. Opportunity was also given to discuss ways Makaton can be delivered within different settings, this was very helpful. I feel very confident now using Makaton.”

“Just attended a great taster session in Makaton provided by @unisontheunion and @EGTrainingLtd. Best 2 hours of online training I have participated in a long while. Clearly the tutor was engaging and interactive. Inclusive communication is vital”

“Fabulous & Informative”

“The course tutor was friendly and welcoming. She was very knowledgeable about Makaton and was able to answer any questions raised. The course was delivered in a fun way and at an appropriate pace.”

“Training was great. Informal, fun and a good pace. Would happily do another course with EG Training.”

“Small numbers gave you confidence to have a go at the practical activities!”
