British Sign Language (BSL)


This MESHGuide has been created to inform a range of professionals and the general public about British Sign Language.  It considers the history of signed communication as the language tool for deaf people and its use in education.  It is hoped that parents of newly diagnosed deaf childern will be informed about the use of BSL and the educational implications and outcomes, to enable them to make choices about their approach to language development and communication for their child.

This guide is one in a series of Deaf Education MESHGuides.
