British Sign Language Production Test training course

This course is designed for staff (Deaf staff, Teachers of the Deaf, Speech and Language Therapists, etc.) who work with primary school-aged deaf children who use British Sign Language (BSL) to communicate. It is the only course of it’s kind and as such its format is now being replicated worldwide, successfully up and running in Australia.

The aim of the course is to train participants to use the BSL Production Test, which is an assessment of narrative skills for deaf children aged 4-11 years.

The course has two parts: the first part takes place over 3 consecutive days, during which participants learn about language development in sign languages, receive a basic introduction to sign linguistics and learn how to code child BSL data. There are regular opportunities to practice coding in small groups. At the end of the 3 days, participants are given homework assignments to complete which they send to tutors for marking.

The second part of the course is the follow up day, which takes place in September. Here, participants receive feedback on their assignments and discuss topics such as how to assess the language of children with additional needs, how to develop interventions based on assessment findings, etc.
