Access to English for deaf children and adults
Cued Speech uses eight hand-shapes in four different positions near the mouth to clarify the lip patterns of normal speech.
With the vocabulary and structure of spoken language made visible, deaf children can quickly acquire an understanding of spoken language.
With Cued Speech, deaf babies, children and adults can see all the sound based units of speech as clearly as hearing people can hear them.
Cued Speech can work alongside British Sign Language (BSL) for true bilingualism in both BSL and English.
