Super excited to be here! :)

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

I am super excited to be here :)

My daughter was born with a hearing impairment and wears a hearing aid every day, all day. Since I found out about her HI, I have made a conscious effort to include her in the deaf children's community and try to promote the inclusion of deaf students more in schools (I have been a school teacher for a decade, so I started a BSL project in my previous school to do this).

I took my BSL Level 1 exam (Signature) last week and am expected to pass with flying colours! Yay!

With that said, I am unbelievably excited to start my Level 2 in September and have been searching high and low for a group / forum just like this, where I can meet other BSL students / people from the deaf community and practice my skills.

I look forward to meeting many of you soon (although, likely through Zoom!) :D 

Best wishes,

Sarah

    • As I work at a company that create material for children, I wish by learning more about BSL I would be able to understand better how to support children with special needs or create resources that support them, especially when I used to work at a childcare centre where most TA would struggle with children with autism; through sign language, it allows them to communicate better and I can be part of the change that make it easier for anyone that would appreciate the assistance.

    • Hi I've started the British-sign online course. My daughter has a hearing loss but opts to be unaided.   She manages so far in life to communicate & learn well and relies on close distance hearing and of lip patterns. Now that social distancing  & masks are being worn she has 2 new additional barriers to learning & communication.  So I want to learn BSL to help her. I'm not confident or fluent yet but I've passed on a few signs I've learnt so far. Our aim is to reach a good level of
    • Hi I'm Kezia, I have always wanted to learn BSL but have struggled with learning other languages. I decided to finally give it a go and am really enjoying it so far.  Now that we all have to wear masks due to Covid I feel that it is more important than ever to learn.
