New England Cued Speech


This is a collection of materials that we've developed to help teach cued speech and for which people have asked. Unless otherwise noted in the individual documents, all items are copyright 1998-2001 J. Frisbie and J. Krause. You may use them for your own purposes under the following conditions:

  1. All items appear entirely and without modification.
  2. If used as handouts for a Cued Speech class, the class and handouts must be offered free of charge.
  3. If included in a larger work, an information packet or brochure for example, the larger work must be distributed free of charge.
  4. No electronic copies may be published, via the WWW or through an ftp site for example. Instead, link to the online version.

If you would like to obtain other rights (i.e. use these materials in some other fashion), please contact Joe Frisbie, 1122 E Pike St #990, Seattle, WA 98122.
