  1. I'm about to start as a Child/Mental Health Nurse and already have a degree in Psychology and Counselling. I'm studying this for a few reasons; to help in my future placements as a nurse, to help my husband learn as he's losing his hearing and to help my daughter who is autistic and struggles with facial social cues. BSL has been proven to help with autistic's language learning (spoken and non-spoken) whether they be verbal or non-verbal, that's probably the main reason I'm here.
  2. Hi! I start as a Student Children/Mental Health Nurse in September and have wanted to learn BSL for a while, so I thought I would take this summer to brush up the very few signs I have known since childhood into an actual functioning working knowledge o the language so that I can better help future patients. I'd love to practise with someone, I'm starting lesson five today so I'm not exceptionally brilliant, but I'm eager! I'm currently struggling with the few different ways I've found to say 'I am a student nurse and I will get you an interpreter'. Here it says one thing but the Liverpool John More University Mentors say something else, also using BSL!
