Lesley Weatherson, founder of ALAS, presented the new association to NRCPD board in London 01/03/17. The board had the opportunity to ask questions, clarify aims and objectives as well as listen to Lesley’s pitch!
Lesley was part of a talented group of lipspeakers and deaf service users who created the National Occupational Standards (NOS) for the Level 3 Certificate in Lipspeaking and would like to see a NOS created to set a standard for lipspeaking with sign.
“Deaf people are relying on a service that on paper, doesn’t exist”
Lesley would like to see a qualification created to set a standard; a qualification based on signs borrowed from BSL, vocabulary competence.
