Cued Speech Documentation | Myths & FactsFact: Cued Speech does not require the use of speech or voice to communicate clearly, nor was it developed for the purpose of improving a deaf person’s speech skills. While speech therapists and auditory rehabilitation specialists have employed the use of cueing in therapy sessions as a biofeedback tool, it is considered a secondary benefit of the system. In the 1960s, it was believed that phonemes and speech were interrelated and could not be separated, and this is partly why the system was named “Cued Speech.” Below are articles and materials that will help break the myth about Cued Speech:
