Hello!

Recommended Posts

My name is Beth, i am 24 and a qualified Occupational Therapist working in the NHS for 2 years.

Working for the NHS during the lockdown period i continued to work, more shifts, later shifts and I had to adapt massively to the changes in service to meet the needs of our patients during lockdown and coronavirus. I chose to begin BSL as something to distract myself when home, my younger brother has Autism and we communicate through sign, albeit not british sign language, i learnt basic signs to communicate with him.

After lifting of restrictions i began to find myself completing my old hobbies that i lost touch with the BSL work, but now i am back again to complete it for part of my CPD and to use in my work!

Was just interested what sign language do you use if not BSL to communicate with your brother. Is there another sign language used in the UK?

I've kinda defaulted to signing yes, which seems to get the point across at shops and what not, but I also think it might come across as a little rude? I'm kinda new to signing frequently, prior to people wearin

    • 👋🏻 Hello  I've just started learning BSL, I've always thought that BSL should have been an option when learning languages at school. I don't have anyone in my immediate circle who uses BSL but I have always wanted to learn. I'm part of an additional needs parenting group and a few of their children use sign language, because they're either deaf or struggle to communiate verbally.  I am currently not working so thought now the kids are back to school I'd make the most of my time and lea
