Sera Neon Partners With DOT To Raise Deaf Awareness

Sera Neon partners with Dot Sign Language UK to raise Deaf Awareness & British Sign Language (BSL)

Sera Neon is an Oracle Partner, and  DOT is a BSL and Deaf Awareness Training School. Together we aim to improve communication and understanding between D/deaf and hearing people. Together, we will provide first-class tuition in British Sign language to anyone who wishes to learn.

Session Includes:

Deaf Awareness Facts

Deafness ranges from mild or partial to a total inability to hear. People with hearing impairment may have hearing aids and can communicate using sign language.

Communication Tips

There are some of the common communication approaches chosen by deaf people. Lip-reading, Fingerspelling, & British Sign Language are a few.

Accessibility for deaf people in the workplace/community

From communication to the workplace itself, deaf people face barriers when it comes to finding a job. Some simple ways can enable them to be productive.

Lip Reading and Non Manual Features

Lip reading, also known as speechreading, is a technique of understanding speech by visually interpreting the movements of the lips, face and tongue

Fingerspelling and BSL

Fingerspelling is a method of spelling words using hand movements and is used in sign language to spell out names of people and places for which there is not a sign.

Fingerspelling and basic BSL tuition/practice
