Event description

Description

The NCSA Deaf Children’s Literacy Project invites you to discover how deaf children can learn the building blocks of English (phonemes), rhyming skills, and the language of their home through their eyes with cueing. Cued American English provides the foundation for language development and phonemic awareness that deaf children need for lifelong English literacy and for meeting success with hearing aids and cochlear implants.

Introduction to CAE: During this interactive workshop you will learn how the eight handshapes (groups of consonants) and four placements (groups of vowels) of the Cued Speech system are combined to express English visually. You will acquire the skills to leave the workshop and become a proficient cuer. The workshop will introduce the complete system and offer suggestions for developing your skills after the workshop.

Class is from 8:30-4:30 each day. There will be a lunch break each day for students on their own. There are plenty of places to get lunch within a short walk of the meeting room.

An NCSA Certified Instructor will teach each class.

Preregister by March 21. A $5 fee will ensure your place in the class. Fee will be refunded on the second day of class. A $20 fee is charged for registrations after March 21.

Preregistration is required. Class space is limited to 25 and is on a first come first serve basis. Registration at door only available if space allows. Participants will be notified via email of the room number prior to class by the instructor.
