Inclusion facilitated by visual access to spoken English - Anne Worsfold, Executive Director, Cued Speech Association UK describes some of the many advantages to accessing education through a Cued Speech Transliterator. Because it gives complete and unambiguous access to spoken English, deaf children brought up with Cued Speech have English language development which echoes that of hearing children. They achieve reading scores which equal hearing children and can develop an internal phonological model of spoken language, including good rhyming skills, which enables them to learn to read using the same techniques as hearing children. In addition, case studies suggest that Cued Speech is a great help with speech and enables deaf children familiar with it to more easily lipread those who do not cue.  Published in BAToD Magazine January 2006.
