PURPOSE

It is our purpose to be a national Centre of Expertise for Sign Language of the Netherlands and Signed Dutch and multimedia educational materials.

As Lexicographic Institute for NGT the Dutch Sign Centre aims to collect signs from Deaf native signers in the Netherlands, to maintain and develop the lexicon of NGT further and to make the lexicon available.

With our work we want to build a bridge between Deaf NGT users, the Deaf community, and all people who use signs. We want to contribute to a greater visibility of NGT as a language in the Netherlands and to strengthen the position of Deaf people who use NGT in the Dutch society.
