About the Deaf Children's Literacy Project

Logo of the Deaf Children's Literacy Project Thanks for visiting the Deaf Children's Literacy Project page, we are glad you are here to learn about our nationwide movement in supporting and increasing literacy and educational development for deaf and hard of hearing children.

The Deaf Children’s Literacy Project (DCLP) is an non-profit charity founded by the National Cued Speech Association (NCSA) in the late 1990s. The DCLP was conceived through past NCSA efforts in securing Congressional support through grants in its campaign in making literacy much more accessible for deaf and hard of hearing infants and children alike.

Unfortunately, the support from Congress is few and far in between, hardly much if at all. This is where we need your support for new 'cueing' families with your contribution or financial donation to the DCLP. This will help support newfound families of deaf infants / toddlers as well as individuals in providing workshops, camps and in furthering their educational opportunities through financial support and scholarships!

All donations are taxable deductable because they go into supporting a non-profit charity!

Cued Speech is what parents need to able to effectively, fully communicate in English (complete sentences) with their deaf infants and or children in efforts to build deeper, stronger relationships throughout their lifetimes. It is through Cued Speech that children are able to receive full access to basic phonemics (phonemes, vowels and consonants) needed for complete literacy development.
