A free three-session “Cued Speech for Beginners and Beyond” series will be held at the Rockville Memorial Library on May 19, June 2 and 9, from 1 to 4 p.m. No program will take place on Memorial Day. The library is located at 21 Maryland Ave. with free garage parking available during the first two hours.

The series is designed for individuals ages 16 and older who wish to learn Cued Speech, a visual communication system that makes spoken language visible.

Created for deaf and hard of hearing individuals, it can also be used with a variety of populations to facilitate speech and language development. This class is appropriate for parents, professionals, family members and caregivers. Those who already have knowledge of Cued Speech are welcome.

Co-sponsored by Montgomery County Public Libraries, the series is funded by the Montgomery County Association of Hearing Impaired Children.

Registration is limited to 30 participants, includes all three sessions and is available online.
