The DeafSpace Institute at Gallaudet has documented over 150 elements of DeafSpace, which it defines as "a unique spatial awareness and means for modifying the environment" practiced by deaf people throughout history.

The project is now exploring ways to translate the original behavioral constructs into scientifically based standards in hopes that its work will benefit not only the deaf community but also others with perceptual and cognitive challenges.
