Thanksgiving is a time for families to be together and remember what they are thankful for. In the context of hearing loss communication is a critical aspect in maintaining that familial relationship.
Having met many parents who chose Cued Speech for their children, one common theme I've always heard is that Cued Speech brought their family closer.
Regardless of the mode of communication, parents will always have that desire to communicate with their child. After all it is a natural instinct which facilitates the child's language development.
Cued Speech of Colorado is thankful for:
Parents who strive to ensure their children have all opportunities available and access to language.
Professionals who go above and beyond in providing services for children and families impacted by hearing loss.
CSCO Members who have spent time and effort representing CSCO and teaching individuals to cue.
Deaf Cuers who are continuing the same efforts their parents made as advocates of Cued Speech.
National Cued Speech Association which has laid the groundwork for chapters to carry out the mission and vision of Cued Speech as a means of accessing spoken language and facilitating literacy development
Dr. R. Orin Cornett who recognized the true impact of hearing loss on spoken language and literacy development and understood the need for a means of accessing that spoken language visually with accuracy and in real-time.
