Why I am learning BSL?

Recommended Posts

I am a Learning Support Assistant for a PLMD/ASD school. and already use Makaton whilst in my role which I find fascinating.

 I am currently learning BSL because it is sometime to pass the time whilst being at home, I am a critical key worker but as we only have 9 students that are in at the moment only a select few of us are needed at the moment. 

I thought it would be a good idea to brush up on other ways of communicating, I do not have any hearing impaired friends or family as yet, but would like to be able to communicate with them, and make them feel like they are included in the conversation

    • I love languages and work in Diversity and Inclusion work for an LGBT charity, and so wanted to combine my love of languages with being inclusive, which led me to sign language. I hope that I will be able to learn to sign clearly and well and that this skill will aid me in learning how to create inclusive spaces for Deaf and signing people.
