British Sign Language & Communication

Private tuition in British Sign Language and Deaf Awareness for individuals and small groups. Registered and approved centre with Signature, the awarding body in Sign Language qualifications.

Experience

As well as lively, thought-provoking courses in British Sign Language, we also offer Deaf Awareness and Deafblind Awareness training for businesses and front-line staff.

Develop

We work with families of deaf children, providing tactics for good communication practice in the classroom and at home, emotional support, signposting and Deaf role models.

Learn

Our After School Clubs in BSL are open to all children 7 to 15, and can be adapted for other ages. With practical exercises and lots of fun, young people can learn the basics of BSL.

Our story

Ayesha Communications was created in 2010 in response to many enquiries about private tuition in British Sign Language and Deaf Awareness for individuals and small groups and we are a registered and approved centre with Signature, the awarding body in Sign Language qualifications.

As many as 1 in 6 of the UK population are affected by some degree of hearing loss (RNID 2005), and many of these people face difficulties in their day to day lives due to communication breakdowns which inevitably happen, and which many people do not understand how to repair.

We take tremendous pride in our work, and make it our goal to be the first choice for all of our customers.

Education and awareness surrounding hearing loss is key for individuals, groups, and businesses.

About Ayesha

“My name is Ayesha Gavin, and I am a profoundly Deaf native user of British Sign Language. I am also able to use English fluently and to a high level. I hold a BA (Hons) degree in Experience of Writing and Film & Television Studies (1998), a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (2004) and a level 6 NVQ in BSL. I have 10 years experience in delivering courses in deaf issues and BSL.

​ I can use my insight and experience to offer you a greater understanding of all aspects of deafness, from communication and the technology used, to the social impact of a hearing difficulty and, furthermore, how to minimise this for the people you meet.”
