Camp will be held on Columbus Day weekend, October 8-11 (Th-Su). The Adult Beginning Cued Speech class starts on Thursday evening at 8:00. All other classes and activities start Friday morning at 9 am.

What’s happening at camp?

Ten years after his Cue Camp Virginia debut, Dr. Charles I. Berlin, internationally-renowned audiologist, will return to CCVA with presentations on Saturday, October 10th!

Dr. Berlin’s morning keynote address to all Adult classes, Secrets of the Audiogram, will discuss what the audiogram does and does not tell us, and how Cued Speech can be used to fill the gaps.

Dr. Berlin’s afternoon Professional Day seminar is: Changes in Hearing Science and the Role of Cued Speech as a Tool in the Management of Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Children.

Please let your audiologist and your school professionals know about this! (Certificates of completion will be provided for 6 hours of Dr. Berlin’s presentations.)

See more info about Dr. Berlin on the NVCSA homepage,

What's New in 2015?:

We have a new addition to the Adult program: the Advanced Beginner/Intermediate Practice Workshop, intended to help participants increase proficiency, fluency and confidence. Don’t repeat the Beginning Cued Speech class! If you already know the system; this is the class for you!
