Cued Speech is a mode of communication which combines a small number of simple hand cues with the natural mouth movements of speech to make the sounds or “phonemes” of spoken language clear through vision alone. Consistent use of Cued Speech enables a deaf child to attain age-appropriate English language and literacy skills. Cued Speech effectively complements the use of hearing aids and implants, clarifying any and all sounds, in real time, as they are spoken. Cued Speech complements the use of sign language in a family that has the goal of English and ASL bilingualism for their child.
The NCSA supports a community of cuers who have come together to promote language accessibility through Cued Speech. The NCSA maintains a vast and searchable library of Cued Speech resources. Click here for more information about the Cue Family Program.
