Family Support Wales will be offering a series of BSL sessions to support and help adults and older children who want to learn to communicate using BSL. The sessions will cover everyday communication and conversation. The aim is to help families interact and understand each other with subjects such as health & well-being, difficulties and emotions and with everyday instruction and need.

These sessions are open to anyone who wishes to learn BSL. The sessions will be structured in a way that will allow those learning to build a vocabulary of words and sentences that will lead to interactive exchanges with those you communicate with. These sessions will develop your ability to communicate with and understand others that use BSL.

The sessions will be two hours long. The first session will be held on May 10th from 10.00 to 12.00. This will be followed by 9 other sessions, each helping you progress and learn.

From the start we will help you develop basic BSL skills and understanding. As the series progresses we will support you to develop your BSL skills and understanding. Our groups are kept to a maximum of 12 per session. This small size group will allow us to support you further to ensure you have 1-2-1 help from our trainer during the sessions. The group size will allow us to develop close learning relationship with you.

During these sessions you will learn the basics of BSL, learn to exchange words, sentences and engage with others during the session. Our aim is to ensure you are confident and competent at the fundamentals of BSL and able to communicate comfortably with others.

Sessions are open to everyone. During the first session there will be a chance to rebook the remaining sessions.

Your trainer will be Jenna Evans. Jenna has a hearing impairment and is fluent in BSL. Her knowledge of the language and skills will mean she can offer these session confidently and with an understanding of what is important for both child and family.
