If you choose to give cueing a try, then our Family Support Practitioner may come to your home (or a venue of your choice) and start to teach you how to cue. They will give you lots of ideas and tips on how to use it with your child and will always try to answer any questions you have and support and encourage you on your cueing journey.
Introductory talks to groups
We can come to your parent support group, nursery, school or any kind of gathering, to offer you an overview of what Cued Speech is and how you can use it enable you to communicate with your deaf child. These talks are usually delivered by a parent who has personal experience of cueing and understands the challenges and the joys of raising a deaf child. These talks always aim to be relaxed and friendly and offer you a place to share some of your own story if you wish and get your questions answered.
We have a team of experienced and friendly tutors who can work with you at a time that suits you for six up to sessions to help you develop your cueing skills. You may use a computer, lap-top, tablet or phone to chat with them and learn in a way and at a pace that suits you.
