Hi everyone 

my little boy is six years old has Down syndrome and Autism spectrum Condition. His hearing is fine but his speech is severely delayed and is only just beginning to emerge - parts of words and sounds but they're mainly copied. He attends a school which teaches BSL throughout so although he started on Makaton he has been learning BSL for the last three years. His signing is once again just copying others however when his one to one signs to him he clearly has a good understanding of the signs. We have been trying to learn BSL through books etc but I'm looking for a suitable course in the Liverpool area. The night school courses aren't suitable they seem to be aimed at adults whereas I need infant type subject matter also they are £800 basic level. Any ideas? Thanks x

    • Hi, my name is Misha and I am learning BSL for many reasons but my main one is so that I can communicate with customers at work who use BSL as their first language 
    • Hi, my name is Sheryl. I am learning BSL because I want to be able to talk to people, and to help make people feel understood. I look forward to learning more.
    • Hello,  I just wished to say why I am learning BSL. I am a dance teacher and am learning BSL so that any student can come to my lessons and learn the art of dance, no matter how much they can hear or their ability. It is something that anyone should be able to enjoy no matter if they are a child or an adult and I wish to be able to make my school as inclusive as possible for all those that wish to learn the art of dance.  
    • Hi everyone, my name is Angela. I started studying BSL a month ago and i’m  enjoying it very much.  
    • Hi! I’m from Melton Mowbray and I’d love to learn the sign name for the town if anyone here knows it. 🙂 (Maybe it’s a pork pie, haha!)
    • Hi I'm Lou and I'm training as a Primary School Teacher from September. I had a previous placement in a SEN school where I learnt some Makaton and I really enjoyed this and found it useful. I wanted to expand on this and learn some BSL over the summer - a skill that could both support my teaching and be shared with my class.
    • I thought that you may like to see a video - produced during the lockdown - featuring 200 young musicians from the Chiltern Music Academy performing a song called 'There's a Power in the Music' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TMLyQSzvLxU The video incudes one of our students who is currently learning to sign. For more information about Chiltern Music Academy visit www.chilternmusicacademy.org Thank you Andy  
    • Hi, my name is Emma and I decided to start the BSL introducing sign language course this summer. I believe everyone has the right to communicate and as an aspiring solicitor I would love to be able to assist all the clients I may have in the future. This course means I will have a better chance of being able to advise clients who may be hard of hearing or have complete hearing loss.
