Discover how deaf children can learn the building blocks of English (phonemes), rhyming skills, and the language of their home through their eyes with cueing. Cued American English provides the foundation for language development and phonemic awareness that deaf children need for lifelong English literacy and for meeting success with hearing aids and cochlear implants and/or with ASL.
During this two-day, 14-hour interactive workshop participants will learn how the eight handshapes (groups of consonants) and four placements (groups of vowels) of the Cued Speech system are combined to express English visually. You will acquire the skills to leave the workshop and become a proficient cuer. The workshop will introduce the complete system and offer suggestions for developing your skills after the workshop.
Parents, teachers, SLPs, early interventionists, audiologists, etc - all are welcome! This workshop is only available face to face.
REQUESTS FOR ASL INTERPRETERS MUST BE RECEIVED BY FEBRUARY 22, 2019.
