Introducing myself

Recommended Posts

Hi, Im Hayely and I am 25 years old.

I started doing this to pick up a new skill during these difficult times and my friend actually inspired me to do it because she started at the beginning of 2020 and now knows her basic lines for her job (she works within the NHS). Another reason is because my work is closed but we have help our local council with jobs for helping other people and they asked if anyone knew sign language, obviously not enough to help out but still it got me here!

the basics i know so far are numbers, alphabet question and (related to me) places. 

Happy to practice with anyone :) 

Also wondering if anyone can recommend some books to also learn from?

    • I am hard of hearing myself and learnt Makaton as a child. As an adult I can hear better and am currently training to be an Autism Behavioural Analyst and will be using a combination of sign language and Makaton to assist deaf/hard of hearing clients and also non verbal clients
    • Hey guys, I am 26 and currently training to be a Autism Behavioural Analyst and decided to learn sign language for children/adults who are either deaf or non verbal.  I live in the UK and have a young son who is 5. I live with him and my fiance and a cat called Freyr.
    • Hello everybody, My name is Gary and the reason I want to learn BSL is I work within the Northumbria Police organisation and communication plays a big part within my role. We have google translate for communication with people who do not understand English but embarrassingly struggle when it comes to the Deaf community.   Thanks  Gary
    • Hi everyone! I'm a postgraduate student and I'm learning BSL because I want to be more inclusive in communicating and meeting new people. I grew up signing Makaton with my family, but it's been a long time and I've forgotten most of it... the sign for 'biscuit' has always stuck with me, and while I think that might be one of the most important signs, I'm looking forward to learning much more!
    • Hi, i recently completed a course in makaton which i use the sign when asking him to do something or going places, like car, or bed, please and thankyou, he can do a couple when he wants too 😁  we also watch a lot of mr tumble and we have a singing with sign dvd from a charity called singing hands which is great, he is only 18months but he loves watching anything with signing on it!
    • How do you teach you grandson to do the signs? 
    • Hi I am Emily Lucas and I looking into using design to help teachers and parents teach babies and young children sign language. I would really love to here about you experiences teaching or learning sign language, how were you taught, why did you start learning or teaching you baby to sign? Any information would be helpful. 
    • Hi there, Hope you are all enjoying learning to sign! Despite being diagnosed with a hearing impairment at age 13, with likelihood being I've had one since early childhood, I have never been given support to learn sign language as a supportive communication facility. I do wonder if this is because sign language is not something people know, so it wouldn't have been much help. It's why we need to all play a part in learning some sign. We don't know who we are going to meet who uses sign. You
