Hi from me to you!

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am Megan, 36 years old with three children. 

I wanted to learn sign language as I feel it is needed to improve inclusivity. I believe schools should have it in their curriculums, particularly with an increase of children with SEN attending mainstream school. I have worked with a non-verbal child myself and having another way to communicate would have been a fantastic addition to our working relationship. My daughter showed a keen interest to also learn BSL so we are testing each other each day and thoroughly enjoying this wonderful language.

That is awesome you have someone to train with, I test my little knowledge of BSL with my 7yr old nephew, he has hearing difficulties and he learns from his friends. I totally agree all schools should teach this, maybe as one of the language choices they have (if children still have choices now, it has been a long time since I was at school). x

    • Hi! I’m Emily, I was a CoDa (child of deaf adult) between ages of 5 and 12 as we used BSL at home to communicate with my stepdad who was deaf.    I recently watched a show with a deaf actress in who used ASL and it reminded me that I know quite a lot of basic BSL but I want to brush up on my skills so I can effectively communicate with any BSL users I come across! It’s also a fun hobby ☺️
