My reasoning behind learning BSL

Recommended Posts

I decided to start learning sign language as I'm autistic and struggle to speak a lot of the time so sign language gives me a secondary way to communicate. Recently I have been unable to speak for almost three days where it normally lasts a couple of hours so I'm kind of in a hurry to be able to communicate. Especially as I need support and the only way I can communicate with them at the moment is emojis 🤣.

I find it disappointing that schools do not teach BSL, as there are many people who use it as their only language, and it is disheartening to know that not everyone can understand them. I am unsure how b
