Handful of Sounds: Cued Articulation in Practice, A
Cued articulation was originally 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 colour-coded consonant sounds, which aids 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.
A Handful of Sounds is written by speech therapists and teachers who have found cued articulation useful in many different settings.
