DFG-Project on the processing of DGS and reading:
“Coactivating the difference in the verbal domain of German Sign Language: A developmental perspective at signers processing signing and reading (CoDiPro)“
(Video language: DGS / copyright: IDGS)
The project "Coactivating the difference in the verbal domain of German Sign Language: A developmental perspective at signers processing signing and reading (CoDiPro)" has been approved for funding by the German Research Foundation (DFG). The cooperative project between the Institute of German Sign Language and Communication of the Deaf (IDGS) and Sign Language and Audio Pedagogy (D2L, EW) aims to investigate for the first time the development of bimodal-bilingual co-activation patterns of DGS and German (reading). Deaf and hearing adults as well as deaf students of different ages and with different language biographies will participate in EEG studies. The project is expected to yield results on the emergence of possible co-activation patterns that will, among other things, inform the design of effective reading support approaches for deaf and hearing-impaired children.
