They will talk through your options and signpost you to relevant organisations. Or, if you choose Cued Speech as one of your choices, they will give you lots of ideas and tips on how to use it with your child and will always try to answer any questions you have and support and encourage you on your cueing journey.
Introductory Talks to Groups
We can come to your parent support group, nursery, school or any kind of gathering, to offer you an overview of what Cued Speech is and other options that may be of interest to you. Providing information on how to access these.
These talks are usually delivered by a parent who has personal experience of cueing and understands the challenges and the joys of raising a deaf child. These talks always aim to be relaxed and friendly and offer you a place to share some of your own story if you wish and get your questions answered.
