Visual Phonics: See The Sounds
September 15, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm
Klein, Certified Visual Phonics Instructor
Visual Phonics was conceived as a
mechanism to make the phonemic aspects of spoken language visible to students
who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing. See-the-sound/Visual Phonics was developed
in 1982 by the International Communication Learning Institute. It consists of
46 hand and grapheme cues. The hand cues provide visual and kinesthetic
information that can be associated with the way a sound is produced verbally.
For example, the /p/ sound is represented with a hand cue that simulates the
“plosiveness” of /p/ – the air being released from the lips. The grapheme
cues are unique symbols that when paired with letters provide students with a
visual correlation for the sound a letter might “make” in a particular word.
