Cued Speech

Cued Speech is a system of hand shapes and movements that can be used to supplement spoken sounds so that people with severe hearing loss can still understand what is being said.

Cued Speech is not a language, but it supplements any language with several special hand shapes and movements that are designed to allow a hard of hearing individual to differentiate among sounds that look alike when seen on the lips (See speechreading)

Cued speech can be used by both children and adults, and some feel that, since relies on the primary spoken language then it can help strengthen abilities in that language.
