Learn to Read Cues

Receptive Worksessions

Our transliterator training series teaches you to everything you need to go from cue reading syllables to stories. The following additional classes can be programmed to stand alone or integrated with transliterator training to build receptive skills fast.

Classes for Cue Reading

Beginning Cue Reading

This course introduces cue reading at the word and phrase-level and builds to short paragraphs. Students identify their individual tendencies when cue reading and work on strategies to increase their understanding of a cued message.

Receptive Skill Building

Students review key concepts related to cue reading. Initial activities use single words and common phrases. More challenging activities include sentences, and short stories. Student interaction and gameplay are used throughout.

Developing Receptive Fluency

The aim of this course is to advance students toward the goal of understanding cued English at a conversational level. Lessons focus on the aspects of cue reading that novice cue readers find more difficult. Students cue read stories with connected discourse.

Understanding Non-Model Cueing

Nobody’s perfect, but cue reading through other people’s mistakes can be difficult for non-native cuers. In this course, students will work on understanding a cued message in spite of common errors and differences in dialect.

Classes for Voicing

Cue Reading to Voicing

In this course, students apply their cue reading skills toward the goal of accurately and appropriately voicing for a deaf consumer. Some activities are conducted silently and provide complete immersion in cued English. Other tasks require students to cue read a message while simultaneously speaking aloud.

Voicing Techniques

Students practice taking cued information from a deaf, native cuer and simultaneously voicing that material to a group. Voicing while working with a team transliterator is discussed and practiced.
