Why am I learning BSL?

Recommended Posts

I am learning BSL as I would like to be more inclusive and being disabled I know how important it is to be understood and communicated with in a way that feels comfortable. I am going into a career where I will talk to many people (veterinary nursing) and I am sure that at some point during my career I will be able to use BSL (once I am more confident with it) to help someone feel more comfortable which is so important when in a difficult situation.

    • 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 ☺️
