What is Cued Speech?

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.
