Abstract

Over the past 11 years, the Center Comprendre et Parler and the associated Ecole Intégrée of Brussels have developed an original combination of Cued Speech and signs called Complete Signed and Cued French (CSCF). CSCF uses the advantages of both methods while avoiding their drawbacks. The purpose of this practice is to enable deaf children to progress simultaneously in signed and spoken language. The approach is flexible, respects each child's learning rhythm, and ensures that expressive skills do not lag too far behind comprehension abilities. It avoids polemical issues and irrational choices of exclusivity (oralism vs. signs) and prepares access to bilingualism.
