Yes, in Brazil here in Porto Alegre, there is Concordia Lutheran School for the Deaf.  In Florianopolis, there is a new graduate school level program in linguistics using Sign Writing everywhere.  I wish it had been highlighted at the TESLR conference, but that will have to wait for the next time.

You can download the presentation in its entirety...

Plus don't forget the schools using SignWriting in Brazil...

and there is a half-hour TV program on kids in Germany using 
SignWriting that is wonderful...
