we need sign language in mainstream schools

Recommended Posts

I am currently carrying out research around this area. It would make a big difference if people could take their time to fill out this questionnaire after reading the consent form. I am teacher in training, currently writing a report on 'how can we implement sign language into mainstream school to promote inclusion'. parent questionaire.docx online consent letter.docx

I am 14 and  learning BSL in school and I am going to do my grade 1 exam. When BSL started in my school a lot of people wanted to learn it (90) however the number of people learning has now dropped to 10. I think the main reasons people stopped coming were time and commitment. The sessions are an hour and a half long and it is really difficult to focus for this long, also people felt that they had to come every single week. If BSL is taught in schools the sessions would need to be shorter.

I strongly agree. BSL should be introduced in min stream school. I am  a TA in a primary school and learnt BSL to support a child with Downs Syndrome. I really enjoyed it and saw results. I am now doing BSL Level 3.

    • 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 hers seems to be slightly different to what I'm learning 🤔☹️) and my mum used to sign/interpret for their church (about 15 years ago) so introduced makaton to me before I was old enough to talk, I've always been interested in learning it properly and am now learning it for my skills section of bronze award for DofE. I'm also learning Braille (which has no

    • I have thought about learning sign language at various times since I was a teenager - which feels like a very long time ago now -  but I never quite got round to it... Then I had a serious ear infection that resulted in permanent damage on one side. The tests I had to determine the level of damage also showed that I have noise induced hearing loss, and was missing some of the range that allows me to hear normal speech on both sides. Probably explains why people sometimes thought I was in a
