MAKING VISIBLE THE SPOKEN WORD.
Our goal is to inform, equip and support those wishing to join us on our journey of raising the level of Deaf Literacy Standards in Southern Africa.
CUED SPEECH SA
AT A GLANCE
Cued Speech SA was founded by Lynette and Richard Diederichs in 2007. Lynette attended Cued Speech Courses in both the UK and the USA (Level 1 & 2) and is recognised by the Cued Speech Association UK as qualified to conduct workshops, to examine and certify teachers, other professionals and parents as to competency in Cued Speech. Cued Speech SA is a Voluntary Association with its headquarters at
7 Church Street Camperdown.KZN South Africa. Foundation Courses are run at Camperdown on demand for parents of Deaf Children, teachers of the Deaf, Speech Therapists, and Audiologists. Lynette has been involved with Deaf Education since 2005. Her passion is to see Deaf children having receptive access to, and internalise the language of the text in order to read and write it effectively.
We also offer a Home Education Support Service for those parents wishing to explore Home Schooling as an option for their Special Needs child, within the specific context of the Department of Educations Policy on Home Education.
EAST LONDON SPEECH THERAPISTS COURSE
Whilst most of the Cued Speech Courses are run at our headquarters in Camperdown, sometimes it makes sense for us to do the travelling should sufficient participants warrant it. Courses have been run in Namibia, Port Elizabeth and East London.
KTS EDUCATORS CUED SPEECH COURSE
One Cue at a time.
The start of the Cued Speech journey in South Africa. Embracing something new is always a big challenge. The question that always needs to be asked is not whether we should be doing it, but rather can we afford not to do it, if it will make a difference in the lives of Deaf Learners.
FAMILIES WITH DEAF CHILDREN
The Hodgkinson family 2009
We salute this family for their amazing commitment and dedication in seeking and providing only the best for their daughter Ashleigh. She is a deaf role model and success story that gives hope to parents that otherwise might accept the status quo in Deaf Education in South Africa. Together we can go further.
Life is an adventure or nothing at all.
