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 everyone,   I am an educator learning BSL as part of a development into inclusion for deaf students in mainstream education. I have a interest in learning Film making/Media BSL as that is the course level that I teach :) so any suggestions or hints or tips are greatly appreciated :)
