BSL/ASL spell casting signs for Harry Potter universe

I am looking for BSL or ASL signs for the spells used in the Harry Potter books.

I found a set of 150 Harry Potter specific signs here, but they do not list any of the spell names. For everything else, these are awesome videos.

I started attempting to translate the intent behind the spell with existing BSL/ASL signs focusing on descriptive name signs (e.g. "Accio" became the BSL sign for "command to come.") But as I was going down the list, I realized as a non-native BSL/ASL speaker it was pretty ableist/arrogant of me to assume they did not exist, plus I think I will miss nuance.
