With Cued Speech, your deaf baby or deaf child can:
» Understand and use the English Language
» Become fully literate
If you have a deaf baby or child, or support one at school or nursery, we can help you communicate, and enable your child to fully learn the English language, by teaching you the simple system of Cued Speech (CS). CS, which can be learnt in about 20 hours, combines eight handshapes in four positions near the mouth, with the lip patterns of normal speech, to make every sound a person is saying visually clear.
CS can work alongside British Sign Language (BSL) for true bilingualism in both BSL and English, and complements the use of hearing aids and implants.
Our charity provides: information about and training in Cued Speech throughout the UK.
