February Meetup "Cued Speech Myths BUSTED!"


February 2nd from 7-8:15 pm CST


What is Cued Speech and why should you care? Come join us as we dispel some common myths surrounding the use of Cued Speech. Literacy development and how Cued Speech can support this in deaf and hard of hearing children of all ages will be discussed.

Cued Speech is a visual mode of communication in which mouth movements of speech combine with ‘cues’ to make the sounds (phonemes) of traditional spoken languages look different. Cueing allows users who are deaf, hard of hearing or who have language / communication disorders to access the basic, fundamental properties of spoken languages through the use of vision.

Cued Speech can be used in both the home and educational settings to provide visual access to the sounds of spoken language. It can also be used in conjunction with hearing technology to provide clarification support of the sounds heard. In addition to learning about Cued Speech, we will also present a “taste of Cued Speech” and participants will learn the basic handshapes and locations and cue some simple words.

1) use the information to explain and demonstrate what Cued Speech looks like and how it works.
