The aim of this contribution is to observe, in the Italian social, cultural and legal context, the syllabuses developed over the last forty years in Italian Sign Language teaching. Specifically, the following A1/A2 syllabuses will be proposed and commented on, those included in books published in Italy and those set in the training offers of institutions and language schools in Italy. The aim is to begin to lay the groundwork for the creation of assessment instruments for LIS, in the conviction that what we are learning from research in the field of sign languages can also enrich the reflection on spoken languages educational linguistics.
