This instructional, interactive DVD is a teaching companion to the manual Cued Articulation: Consonants and Vowels (ISBN 9780864318466), the revised edition of the Cued Articulation range. The previously separate titles Cued Articulation and Cued Vowels are now combined and updated, with the manual covering consonants, vowels, demonstrative images, and full color coding throughout. The book was originally devised to help severely speech and language handicapped children to see a sound and hear a letter by the use of easy and logical hand cues. The Cued Articulation system has, over the last three decades, proved to be an invaluable teaching tool. Its potential and practicality is widespread and utilized by speech pathologists, speech and language therapists, remedial and reading recovery teachers who find the approach helpful in showing phoneme-grapheme relationships, and primary teachers who use it in the classroom to teach children the sounds of speech. Teachers who teach correct pronunciation to those who have English as a second language also find it extremely useful, as do teachers of the hearing impaired who want their students to see the sounds they cannot hear.
