Working with a Deaf-led team, the Scottish Sensory Centre (SSC) has produced this online resource which is widely used by deaf students, support staff and teachers. Funding of £114,000 has been raised by the project team at the SSC for the Glossary project over the period 2007 - 2014. The curriculum terms have been collected and / or created by groups of Deaf scientists and BSL linguists. This has been particularly important in Scotland as children are able to take their school exams using BSL.
