Hi Melanie,

Usually children with PMLD or other learning disabilities use a simpler form of signing called Makaton to communicate (if they use signing). This is usually used with small children and those with LD.

 

https://www.makaton.org has a lot of information as well as info on how to learn. Although some signs are similar to BSL, Makaton uses English (grammar) structure and signs can be different.

 

Hope this helps :)

    • I started to learn BSL during the first lockdown. I'm a student pharmacist and saw that I could get the course at a discount.
