Cued Speech is a mode of communication that combines handshapes and placements with the natural mouth movements of speech to clearly convey all of the phonemes of a spoken language. The entire system can be learned in just a few days, with fluency developing over a few weeks to a few months. It has been adapted to over 65 languages.
Cued Speech benefits children with any degree of hearing loss or other special needs that impact language acquisition and/or development of speech and listening skills. Cueing a spoken language creates a phonological language base in the mind of a child that primes him/her for development of age-appropriate language and literacy skills. This also provides a foundation for development of speaking and listening skills -- and effective use of the latest technology, including cochlear implants. Cued Speech can be used as part of a comprehensive approach that includes the entire spectrum of communication and education modalities and approaches -- from ASL to LSL.
