Hello,

My name is Bethany and I'm 14, I just thought I"d say hi and show you what I've learnt. My parents (mostly my mum) know sign (but hersĀ seems to be slightly different to what I'm learning šŸ¤”ā˜¹ļø)Ā and my mum used to sign/interpret for their church (about 15 years ago) so introduced makatonĀ to me before I was old enough to talk, I've always been interested in learning it properly and am now learningĀ it for my skills section of bronze award for DofE. I'm also learning Braille (which has no correlation to this but I thought I'd mention it) as one of my best friends isĀ blind and having EDS myself I spend a lot of time in the disability buildingĀ of my school, hopefully if a deaf or hearing impaired student arrives I can communicate with them as I don't think many others will/can. it wont let me video so I shall try later.

Bye

    • Hi! I am learning BSL alongside a group of hearing friends and our deaf friend who will in some years will need BSL to communicate. But I am also a theatre maker and want to be able to collaborate with Deaf artists and audiences. I am also autistic and find verbal communication difficult sometimes so I'm hoping BSL can help me communicate.
    • New BSL Level 1 & 2 courses starting face-to-face (Central London) and online -Ā https://www.teachmesign.co.uk/ All courses are taught by deaf native BSL signers. Teach Me Sign also have an online learning portal for students, which has lots of videos for self-study and homework between lessons. Please get in touch via the form on our website for more details.
    • Hi Jenny, that is something they have mentioned but to be honest I've not yet really had any information about them just had a bout of perichondritis it just seems to be one thing after another I have another ENT appointment 28th December I'll ask for some information, thankyou šŸ˜ŠĀ 
    • I've decided to learn BSL because I've experienced sudden onset severe hearing loss in both ears. The ENT has told me there isn't anything they can do to help. I'm in the early stages of getting bone-anchored hearing aids; this process will take about a year. I want to have as many communication tools in my arsenal as possible, especially as my hearing is likely to continue to worsen.Ā Ā  Jenny
    • Hi Dawn, I also suffered from chronic infections with in-ear hearing aids. Have you and your GP/ENT/Audiologist ever discussed bone-anchored hearing aids?Ā  I'm trialling them now and so far it's an absolute game-changer for me. They sit behind the ear and use bone conduction to stimulate the auditory nerve; nothing has to go inside your ear with those. Ā  Jenny
    • So here's a quick introduction to myself. My name is Jenny. I'm a teacher and therapist for children with learning or emotional support needs. I'm learning BSL because I have just recently experienced sudden and severe mixed hearing loss in both ears.Ā  I'm hoping I'll be approved for implantation of bone-anchored hearing aids soon, but that process will take at least a year so in the meantime... here I am!
    • For when you don't know the gender of who you're talking about and when talking to people who are non-binary (like myself).
    • Hello everyone I work in a prison and Iā€™m very aware we have limited resources in terms of BSL. Trying to learn the basics to support anyone who may find themselves in custodyĀ
