Descripción: 

In this contribution we review and assess the specificities of vitality and revitalization of sign languages in a context of atypical endangerment. The contribution focuses on concrete examples of revitalization measures, both implemented and not yet implemented, based on the Catalan Sign Language (LSC) community context, such as the important role of language documentation, the reasons of the precarious situation in education and a proposal to establish an inclusive educational model, and finally the potential of an open learning resource offering greater access to sign language education.
