Take a look at how Cued Speech works

Cued speech helps deaf people see what you’re saying.

It’s a manual system of 8 handshapes in 4 positions near the mouth which completely clarify the lip-patterns of your speech and it is quick and comparatively easy to learn.

It turns your spoken language (English and many other languages) into a visual language. Research shows that with Cued Speech 96% of English can be accurately lip-read. You can help your deaf baby or child see the whole of the English language as clearly as hearing people can hear it.

“Because there’s no new language to learn – just a simple system – we could use Cued Speech straight away and say anything”
