BSL IN ACTION
British Sign Language (BSL)
at the Doctors
The video above, courtesy of the National Deaf Children's Society, shows us what it's like to go to the Doctors as a deaf BSL user.
WHY IS BSL SO IMPORTANT?
Imagine a place where everyone speaks the same language, and you're the only one that doesn't. This is the struggle of a deaf person lost in a sea of voices that they cannot hear. BSL is the bridge that allows the profoundly deaf to communicate with the hearing, and each other. Learning it gives voice to the voiceless and contributes to greater equality for deaf and hard of hearing people.
