Hi, I am a counselling and psychotherapy student. I find BSL fascinating, I do struggle with learning new things, but learning BSL has been important to me as my niece and great-nephew both are hard of hearing. I also feel it is a great topic which should be taught at school from a young age, which could support more children with inclusivity.

I am learning BSL as I to am fascinated with all forms of communication, I feel that it should be taught in school from an early age to give all children the tools necessary to be more inclusive of others with a hearing impairment, I also work in a special needs school as an intervenor within a deaf blind class I have a very basic knowledge of BSL and other forms of communication and am trying to further my knowledge to support more students.

Hi! I have been adding to my sign portfolio starting this weekend. I learnt the basics from a deaf friend when I was in high school and have wanted to learn more ever since. So here I am! I’m a teacher & I’m so pleased that BSL is being added to the curriculum.

I don't ever want to be made to feel like that again. Or, indeed , be treated like that again. I am now at a time in my life where I have a bit more time to learn so h
