Where is Cued Speech Used?

Cued speech has been adapted for 68 languages and dialects, and as you can see from the video it is used to support deaf children and adults to understand speech all around the world.

Why English?

Cued Speech UK supports families and professionals to cue in English, the most commonly used language in the UK. Cueing helps deaf children prepare for starting school and thriving in their education. Good educational outcomes and a full understanding of English provide every opportunity for success and with these, deaf people in the UK can aspire to employment that matches their potential.
