I am Amanda. I am a teacher supporting children with special needs particularly autism. I cant work in schools right now and have always been interested in sign language. I have a son who has a mild hearing impairment and almost trained to be a teacher of the deaf at one time. I have been inspired by watching the interpreters on the daily covid updates, it reminded me of how much I wanted to learn in the past but never had the time.  Now I have a lot more time! I am very much enjoying learning to sign. Not confident enough to do a video but I am very impressed by those who have  - I am signing well done to you all! 

Take care everyone

    • Hi! I’m Emily, I was a CoDa (child of deaf adult) between ages of 5 and 12 as we used BSL at home to communicate with my stepdad who was deaf.    I recently watched a show with a deaf actress in who used ASL and it reminded me that I know quite a lot of basic BSL but I want to brush up on my skills so I can effectively communicate with any BSL users I come across! It’s also a fun hobby ☺️
