International Conference on Sign Language Acquisition

Event Information

  • All Day on Thursday, June 23, 2022
The 4th International Conference on Sign Language Acquisition (ICSLA) is an international conference that aims at disseminating recent research findings on sign language acquisition, which cover topics related to monolingual and bimodal acquisition, L1 and L2 sign language acquisition, developmental sign language disorders, and the interface between sign language, cognition, and neuroscience.

The 4th ICSLA conference will have three main themes: Sign language acquisition in cases of variable language input Neural plasticity and neurodiversity in sign language acquisition Modality effects in sign language acquisition: considering gestural, sign, spoken and written language forms.

We want to bring together sign language researchers and people who work directly with signing populations (such as teachers of the deaf, sign language teachers/specialists, early intervention providers, and more). We believe that we can learn a lot from each other!
