There has been a lot of research done on the use of Cued Speech for students who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing. There hasn't yet been any done on children who have DS. I'm anxiously awaiting it. Part of the problem is CS is still relatively new in the deaf community (developed in 1966 makes it still very new) so word is very slow to spread. HOWEVER.. this was announcment was made this month. I'm so excited...this school is within our servicing district.
..............................
The Intermediate District 917 Program for Learners Who are
Deaf or Hard of Hearing at Gideon Pond Elementary in Burnsville, Minnesota has been chosen as a program to be filmed for part of a
nationally-televised PBS special about teaching reading to young children with disabilities. The District 917 Program utilizes a unique bilingual model utilizing both American Sign Language and cued/spoken English. This
unique program, with the results in literacy of its students, has caught the attention of this national network, and the program is honored by this opportunity and recognition. On January 23 and 24, 2007, a crew from WETA station was at Gideon Pond Elementary filming for the PBS TV special. The segment of the special depicting the 917 program will be one-fifth, or about six minutes, of the half-hour special. The special is scheduled to be sometime fall, 2007.
