OK so no post but what about opinions?
Rationalist replied to Colin's topic in BSL in SchoolsI would like to be a contrarian on this issue, with three questions: 1. Of the following four options which one would be the most efficient method of communication between a hearing person and a profoundly deaf person: a) signing supported by fingerspelling b) fingerspelling supported by signing c) handwriting d) text to text on e-devices e) voice to text on e-devices 2.Would an emphasis on signing supported by fingerspelling tend to a) reduce or increase a deaf person’s literacy b) infantalise the non deaf person? c) neither 3. Why is signing supported by fingerspelling the currently accepted method of communication between the hearing and the deaf community?
