I hope you are all well and coping with being indoors. I know it can be tough but I am very much looking at the positives of getting to spend more time with my son. My little boy, Arlo, is deaf and has developmental delays, so we are using this time to brush up on our BSL skills. We are only beginners ourselves but I thought this would be a good opportunity to share some basic signs with you.
Sign language is vitally important and it makes such a huge difference to the deaf community when people know just a couple of basic signs to help deaf children and adults feel included.
I would be happy to make more videos if people are interested.
Anyway, to keep things simple, I thought we would start with “good morning”, “good night”, “please”, “thank you” and for a bit of fun, I have signed “Sing a Rainbow” as well.
Please / Thank you – It is the same sign for both please and thank you but the lip pattern (simply saying the words) is different

I hope you enjoy, please stay safe and I am looking forward to seeing you all soon
