Recognizing Cued Speech
An informative blog that discusses what is cued speech and the communication opportunity it lends itself to the deaf community. The author hits the nail on the head by stating that it is time to "recognize the importance of collaboration rather than criticism."
For more on Cued Speech as a visual communication system that is based on the linguistic principles of spoken language, visit here:
Communication Discrimination in The Deaf Community
Recent blog addressing the communication discrimination, segregation and exclusionary practices promoted by parts of the deaf community. A must read if there is ever going to be a whole deaf community instead of splintering off. Like we say on this home page, there is so much to be accomplished when we work together to gain and preserve equal rights and access amongst The Deaf Community.
