WHY BSL? - Psychology

Recommended Posts

Hello :) 

I decided to start learning BSL as I am currently studying for a career in psychology and having just finished a placement year working with people suffering from brain/spinal injuries I thought it would  be a brilliant way to start to help me stand out from other students looking to enter a career in this sector. One thing I learnt on this placement was how vital it is that you try to understand others who struggle with communication so thought this would be a fantastic way to help with this as well as to fill my time in lockdown!

Happy to chat with anyone about the course, especially those working in the psychology/healthcare sector to share tips and advice.

We also have several younger riders who use Makaton. 
    • I started to learn BSL during the pandemic but did not get very far as I struggled to find the motivation. Since then I worked in retail where I met customers who were hard of hearing and was able to remember the alphabet in BSL, and found it so helpful and a lovely experience when those individuals were able to communicate with me rather than through a friend who was not hard of hearing. I now want to continue my knowledge and skills in BSL to make myself more available to other people and thei

    • For a variety of reasons! I am autistic, and spend a significant part of my time unable to communicate verbally. However, since no one I know had any knowledge of BSL, and I didn't feel able to ask them to learn just for me, I didn't really see it as an option. However, I met a friend who is in a similar situation to me, who chose to learn anyway, and taught their parents rudimentary BSL themselves.
