Hi everyone! I'm Leighann, although I am not deaf, I do have a severe speech impairment since I was 2. So, I was taught Makaton but sadly, it was rendered useless during school because no-one knew it, so, writing has been my main form of communication. However, I decided to learn BSL to enable me to teach my family, friends and now children so they don't necessarily need to ask me to write it or repeat myself, which is usually, at least, 4 times. Happy learning!
