We have been providing Deaf Awareness Training for many years and this time we have been at the Shakespeare Globe (what an amazing place to develop our training course!).
We spent 1 hour with the theatres staff, providing interactive and bespoke training about deaf awareness issues.
Those attending felt they had gained a real understanding of deaf people. We talked about:
The physical environment
Deaf culture and community
Interacting with a deaf person
Basic British Sign Language (BSL syntax & grammar)
Gesture & Expression
And we provided examples of culture aspects like:
Attract attention by tapping on shoulder, waving, etc...
To show facial expressions
Clear lip patterns

Meanwhile you can enjoy the video that we recorded during this session and know what those attending think about the course.
