We are so excited to welcome everyone back to school after a wonderful, long summer break.
The year got off to a superb start with the staff at our Sabrina Love Day Centre (Die Sterreweg) completing a Makaton training course.
Makaton is a form of alternative communication that makes use of signing, speech and picture communication. It is used to help children and adults who have communication difficulties express their needs and develop social and communication skills.
Esmari Robertson, a tutor from Makaton South Africa came to do a 2 day beginners course with all the staff at Die Sterreweg and some of the Sabrina staff.
In 2019 our 3 speech therapy students; Florence, Sien and Omani helped us introduce Makaton at the Centre during their internship. They also raised some money in Belgium to assist us in funding this course, ensuring that we are all equipped and professionally trained.
