    • Hi all I just want to share a new cushion I have on my Etsy page which I thought might help families to learn BSL. I’ve started using it with my 3 sons who have communication issues. Early days but hoping it might help them or if not give them a skill. I will be developing this idea with names and also on mugs.  If you have a request let me know. www.etsy.com/uk/shop/HandmadebyJ9
    • Hey Sue, You are correct, I have indeed used the wrong sign- I used the sign for Son/Boy instead of the sign for Brother (Brother is most defiantly two knuckles knocking together)  Glad someone Is checking these haha Lola 
    • Hi Lola, Can I just check. Is the sign for son also used for brother. The only sign for brother I know is both knuckles infront of body moving up and down? Thanks for help sue

    • Hey, ex script consultant here, In terms of screenplays it all should be written in English with English grammar, including all of the "Spoken" lines.  If you want the character to be authentic and genuine, give the part to a genuine deaf actor who will know the how to bring the words to life with their hands.   I wish you all the luck in the world! and if you need and ex-script consultant on your team you know where to find me Lola
    • Hi Everyone, my name is Theresa and I am 33 years old and live in Birmingham. I am an undertaker and decided to learn to sign so I could offer the same support and care to any families with a member who is deaf or hard of hearing. I am finding it alright so far but really use my hands a lot when I'm talking so that has been a struggle lol! I would be really interested in talking to anyone else learning, particularly to use in a are in public service setting.
