The Italian Sign Language (LIS) Receptive Skills Test is an adaptation of the  BSL Receptive Skills Test (Herman, Holmes, & Woll, 1999). It has been adapted as part of a larger research project investigating the relationship between language and theory of mind (Surian & Tedoldi, 2005). The goal of this adapted LIS test was to assess the sign language development in Italian deaf children and to monitor the success of deaf education programs. 
In the adaptation process, only one version of the test for Italian Sign Language was developed, despite regional variations in LIS. However, the only sign that showed regional variation was MOTHER, and this was replaced by a non-regional sign for WOMAN in LIS (Surian & Tedoldi, 2005).
