British Sign Language to be made part of the National Curriculum

Did you know the average reading age of a deaf person when they leave school is 9years old?

Have you ever tried to live in a 'deaf' or hard of hearing world? It is very difficult. Even some of the simple tasks such as reading, writing, watching television and driving that us 'hearing' people take for granted are difficult.

Basic Sign Language is easy to learn and fun! Young children will be able to communicate with others more effectively and have a greater appreciation of the wider world and how difficult it can be to live with a disability.

I would like to see Basic Sign Language taught from Primary school age and beyond.
