A Handbook of British Signs
A handbook of British Sign Language aimed at young people which allows for regional variations with signs that link ideas and concepts, and can be constructed in conversation. Topics covered include family and friends, behaviour, sharing ideas, food and drink and feelings.
Cath Smith (nee Catherine Quinn) attended Rochdale Convent Grammar School and trained in social work with deaf people in Manchester and London in the early '70s. During her 18 years employment in a deaf school she also qualified as a BSL/English Interpreter and began her writing career with a range of accessible and ground-breaking books on BSL (British Sign Language). After founding DeafBooks.co.uk she is now well-known for her creation of the LET'S SIGN Series of BSL educational materials and graphics which are widely used in education and adult BSL courses. See www.DeafBooks.co.uk for details of the full range of LET'S SIGN BSL publications and for all new development work.
