What does 'HEARING HEALTH' mean to you? Workshop in Manchester on 23rd September 2019 for BSL Users


Recommended Posts

What does 'HEARING HEALTH' mean to you?

Researchers in Manchester are starting an exciting new project to understand how different people view their hearing and their 'hearing health'. 

We would like to inviteDeaf BSL users who live or work in Greater Manchester to come to a workshop to discuss their own views of hearing and hearing health. The workshop will be run by Celia Hulme (a Deaf researcher) and a visual artist. No experience of research necessary, it is your experience as a BSl user that is important! The meeting will be BSL user friendly. 

Watch this BSL video about the project: https://bit.ly/2m2XuxB

When: Monday 23rd September 2019

Time: 6pm - 8.30pm

Where: Friends Meeting House, Central Manchester

If you wish to book your place or want more information, contact Paolo Arru via email or text. [email protected] or 07816 447520

    • Hi everyone! I think it would useful in my workplace. I work in a hospital, and I've heard about how there can be trouble communicating with patients who are Deaf, so I thought it would be a good thing to learn, in case the need ever arose!
    • Hello. I am trying to learn BSL as I am a riding coach with a riding for the disabled group. I have a hearing impaired rider who I coach who uses BSL. I have learned some signs, finger spelling (very slow) and numbers, and we can communicate a bit but I would like to know more so I can explain things better. We also have several younger riders who use Makaton. 
    • I started to learn BSL during the pandemic but did not get very far as I struggled to find the motivation. Since then I worked in retail where I met customers who were hard of hearing and was able to remember the alphabet in BSL, and found it so helpful and a lovely experience when those individuals were able to communicate with me rather than through a friend who was not hard of hearing. I now want to continue my knowledge and skills in BSL to make myself more available to other people and thei

    • For a variety of reasons! I am autistic, and spend a significant part of my time unable to communicate verbally.
