Cued Speech or cued language is defined as a form of communication that uses hand shapes to represent consonant phonemes and hand placements to represent vowel phones, building blocks of a language, along with mouth movements to remove the ambiguity of lipreading, and to clearly show spoken information through vision alone. Dr. R. Orin Cornett developed the system in 1965-1966 with the goal of improving reading comprehension and to promote literacy for deaf children.
Visual learning is a learning style where a learner needs to see information in order to process it. Visual Learners can utilize graphs, charts, maps, diagrams, and other forms of visual stimulation to better interpret information. While there are many learning styles, visual learning is of great importance to the deaf and hard of hearing. It is also important not to assume that visual learning is the only style that helps.
