What is Cued Articulation?

Cued Articulation is a popular visual signing system used to help Foundation to Grade 2 students learn speech sounds and to support their speaking and literacy skills. It focuses attention on how the mouth makes sounds and can help students hear the differences between speech sounds.

The system is often used by teachers as part of a whole class literacy strategy. It is also used by teachers and Education Support Officers to support students with English as an Additional Language. E.A.L. students can often have difficulties with the English language sound system and Cued Articulation can help students both see and hear sound differences. Students with speech sound difficulties can also benefit from the visual reminders to use correct sounds.
