This chapter focuses on the spoken language development of children using a different kind of visual supplement to spoken language: cued speech (CS). The cued speech system, unlike signs, represents phonetic aspects of spoken language and provides visual-manual information to disambiguate speech sounds that cannot be readily perceived from speech-reading and amplified listening. Data collected in the 1980s and 1990s demonstrated that the use of CS can be a powerful tool for language development when used by profoundly deaf children equipped with hearing aids. CS enhances speech perception through the visual modality, the acquisition of vocabulary and morphosyntax, and meta-linguistic development, as well as the acquisition of reading and spelling, at least for children acquiring French. More recent data seem to indicate that children who have received cochlear implants (CIs) benefit from previous exposure to CS. However, use of CS before implantation is likely to become more and more rare.
