Cued Articulation was devised in the late 1970s, to help severely language-handicapped children understand that sounds could be represented by simple hand cues which show where and how speech sounds are made. This original idea also includes the colour coding of consonant sounds to aid written work. The method was found to be an extremely useful teaching aid, not only for the severely language handicapped, but also with hearing impaired, learning disabled, dyslexic, immigrant and mainstream populations. This book contributes to current working practice by explaining and encouraging therapists to share with other therapists and teachers their knowledge of phonetics and phonology and how the system can be used in both clinical and classroom settings to aid remediation with speech, language, reading and spelling problems. A description of how Cued Articulation has developed over the years in the various settings is included. The book includes chapter contributions from teachers and therapists working in the field, and is written in a reader-friendly language.
