In recent years, one of the hot topics in Spain is the legitimacy and acceptance of homeschooling experiences as a counterpart to the general deficiencies showing formal education compulsory in certain Autonomous regions. In the contributions collected in scientific meetings in autonomous bilingual regions, and in particular, at the University of Navarra, we have been fortunate to see first hand a variety of very interesting contributions regarding effectiveness, and impact assessment in Homeschooling practice in Spain. From the Teacher Training we have questioned how such a profile of educational agents, regardless these being parents, Tutors or teachers-who assume responsibility for conducting basic learning for Primary and / or Secondary school. this issue was made more clear when we address the reality of sign language in the education of our children. Through a poster panel we will discuss our communication in this regard, with the variables collected in the various situations that are presented to parents and the supports and / or collaborations with other entities receiving alternative to compulsory education and Individualized Curricular Adaptation (ICAs).
