Many families of children who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH) use cued speech to enable their child who is DHH to attain age-appropriate English language and literacy skills. Cued speech can also be used to complement the use of sign language for families that have the goal of English and ASL bilingualism for their child. As a result of collaborative work with NCHAM, Cue College now has online resources that are free for families of infants and young children who are DHH. The Cue Family Program provides free access for one year to the online Cue College course, “CS100 – Introduction to Cued American English – Self Study”, for parents, guardians, additional family members, and caregivers of a child who is DHH or has other communication challenges.
