    ive just launched into to doing the BSL in the hope that someone will tell me where to go lol!! i do have a few links of how to get proper qulaifications to become a special needs teacher...AND there are only like 4 uni's that you can get a proper BSL degree from =/ so once i know more i will pass on. i believe if you volunteer/help alot you can train as you go. I know the girl who taught me Makaton explained i could learn with her xxx

    haha google the source of all knowledge, our local college guider person told me i could quite happily do the BSL's with them but would have to be qualified and only certain Uni's would...again...i think i will go to google....

    Makaton route seems a lot easier to do and get into, however i would do the BSL's to help communicate if you come across deaf parents...thats what ive been advised to do if i go down the Makaton route...although i do know the Makaton route is VERY expenisve....ive been looking into buying into a franchise (e.g Sign and Sign or Little signers) and doing it that way xxx

    I would love to learn makaton as my little brother using a few signs. I also want to teach Ella some signs so she can communicate. Our sure start centre does baby signing but only from 6 months so have over a month to wait. Does anyone have any picture of signs that are easy to follow so I can make a start

    That's fab. My OH bought me a baby signing book, I have looked into local classes but they say it's best to go when he is 6 months.
