What is Cued Speech?  Cued Speech is a visual system of communication which allows a deaf person access to the phonemes of a language. In Cued American English, the 40 phonemes (sounds) that combine to form the over 500,000 English words are represented with 8 hand shapes (consonants) and 4 placements around the face (vowels). Cued American English is used with many deaf students in Fairfax County Public Schools and throughout the United States. (
