Hi there! My name is Bethany, and like many of you, I have decided to take the plunge and begin learning BSL during this period of lockdown! I will be graduating this summer with a degree in Psychology and want to use this to start a career in teaching. One of my final year modules focused on Autism Spectrum Disorder, and confirmed to me that I want to work with SENDS children. So, in order to do that, and do it effectively, knowledge of BSL will be so valuable! I took some basic classes in primary school, as one of my classmates was deaf, so I have been able to fingerspell for years, but not much more! So, why not, as we have such an abundance of free time at the minute, use it productively and sign up for a BSL course? So far, so good! I am thoroughly enjoying this process and am really looking forward to using sign language in my day to day life.
