November 5-6. 2011: Cued Speech Initiative @ USF

The Cued Speech Initiative @

Cued Speech Explained…

The National Cued Speech Association defines Cued Speech as a visual communication system that uses eight handshapes in four different placements near the face in combination with the mouth movements of speech to make the sounds of spoken language look different from each other.

  • Spend a weekend and learn Cued Speech from a nationally certified instructor!
  • Cued Speech is a phonemically-based speechreading system which allows a deaf person to see and distinguish every spoken syllable. Its use can aid spoken language development and reading comprehension in deaf children. If you or anyone you know is deaf/HOH, you may find this class especially interesting.
  • This class is offered at the beginning level. No prior experience necessary. Come learn to cue and learn about USF’s role in Cued Speech. After just two days, you’ll be able to Cue (slowly, with your notes) anything you want say!
  • Professional credits: 1.1 ASHA CEUs (Various Level; Basic Communication Processes Area), 1.2 RID CEUs (Professional Studies; Little/none Content Knowledge Level).
