I can see your problem - It does seem that a Makaton enriched environment is what he needs at this stage. Is there any school near you that could offer this ?

Oh bless him sad

Simple Makaton should be so easy for the staff to learn. I hope they want to...

can the nursery do some sing and sign songs the children can learn a few.

my little one is at pre-school, and i am increasingly getting worried, the nursery say 'he is happy playing by himself, but he is getting more anxious when he goes, and is happy and communicates well at home.

Oh that must have been so sad for you.

Could the SALT dept not send the nursery some makaton signs information that they could refer to when your DS signs? I know DS1's SALT has given his preschool Makaton stuff (not for DS1 but just for their general use).
