Visual Phonics by Hand is a system of handcues for teaching and using phonics with deaf children. Using the two-handed fingerspelling alphabet as a starting point, it capitalises on the ability many young deaf children have. It offers a quick tool to show the phonemes in English speech and spelling. It overlays any published phonics schemes to give greater access for deaf children.

It was developed by Headteacher, Babs Day, who, as a Teacher of the Deaf, created it as a literacy teaching tool for mainstream or special school classrooms. VPbH has good application to Speech and Language therapy situations and home use too.
