Hello everyone!


Recommended Posts

Hello. I work at Leeds General Infirmary and I have just started the BSL course. I am a recent graduate from the University of Manchester and during my time there, I wanted to learn British sign language, however I never did it. I have worked with patients who are deaf and use BSL since working in the hospital and I decided I would start a course and learn sign language so that hopefully I can communicate better with patients and help them feel more supported and satisfied with their care. I believe in doing so and encouraging my colleagues to learn as well, we can create a more inclusive environment.

    • 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 ☺️
