Marion Downs Center offers workshops in two forms of visual communication - American Sign Language and Cued American English.
American Sign Language has traditionally been the language of the Deaf community and comes with a culture of its own. With its own set of rules and grammar, American Sign Language is a complete and separate language from spoken English.
Cued American English is part of the Cued Speech system of cued languages which include over 60 languages and dialects from around the world. Cued Speech is a visual mode of communication using hands and mouthshapes based on the phonology of spoken language.
