Hi, my name is Julia. I'm a 43 year old 1:1 teaching assistant. I'm also a mum to 2 wonderful kids, 1 of which is diagnosed ASC and at a special school. About 3½ yrs ago I attended a signalong course to help my sons communication. I really enjoyed the course. I signed up for this during lockdown and thought it would be another great extension to my SEN story.
Hi all! I'm Tiffany and I've recently started learning BSL as I'm an Area of Need Lead for Sensory and Physical in a Mainstream Secondary School in Essex. Looking at the students my team and I support, many have a Hearing Impairment that is supported by hearing aids and radio aids. In September I will have a 14 year old student starting who is profoundly deaf and previously required a full time signer along with a full time note taker. Unfortunately our school cannot provide a signer and parents agree that we are still the right provision. I am learning basic BSL to enable me to communicate with the student until she is fitted with cochlear implants. So far I have completed the first 3 sections and really enjoying it. I'm waiting for other members of my team to sign up so we can practice and encourage one another.
Hello, I am a HLTA in a primary school, I love learning and developing my skills, as a teaching assistant I think it is important to continue to develop for the ever changing world. I am enjoying learning through the BSL website. Melissa x
