Il progetto di didattica inclusiva bilingue per alunni sordi dell’Istituto Barozzi di milano: esiti di ricerca sulle competenze linguistiche degli allievi nativi segnanti
The article shows the result of a research carried on by CeDisMa, Research Center on Disability and Marginality of the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Milan, during the 2016/2017 academic
year at the Barozzi Institute of Milan which involved 20 deaf students, mainly native signers. Since the academic year 2008/2009, the school proposes a bilingual path which includes both oral language and sign based one. The deaf educator manages a LIS lab for all students involved in the project; some teachers know the LIS language while several external aids and ad hoc labs support the project. The attention is on linguistic skills achieved by the deaf students in LIS and their written text comprehension, specific attention is given to native signers.
The scope is to verify the effectiveness of implementing the signed L1 and oral L2, the correlation to development and interaction as well as the improvement expectations.
