The Test de Langue des Signes Française (TELSF), developed at the University of Geneva (Laboratoire de Psycholinguistique Expérimentale) and the Centre pour Enfants Sourds de Montbrillant (Geneva) (Niederberger et al., 2001), is an adaptation of the Prinz, Strong, and Kuntze’s Test of ASL (TASL; Prinz et al., 1994). The purpose of the TELSF project was to create the first assessment tool available in LSF for the bilingual schools of the French-speaking part of Switzerland. Later, the data collected were used to replicate Strong and Prinz studies (Strong & Prinz, 1997; 2000) in another cultural and linguistic context (Niederberger, 2001) and are currently analysed in crosslinguistic sign languages studies.
