Overview

ProSign resources integrate sign language education into Council of Europe developments in language education, especially the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR). 
Highlights are an adaptation of the CEFR levels to sign languages in a modality neutral version, a model of a signed version of the European Language Portfolio (ELP) and approaches to assessment in this field. All information is available in International Sign and in English. The resources have been developed in a bottom-up process involving deaf experts and experienced sign language teachers from inception to completion.
