Many people with hearing loss find following speech difficult. Learning lipreading can help because certain speech sounds, which can often be difficult to hear, make good, identifiable, visible shapes.
In the classes you will learn about the visible and less visible lipshapes, some useful communication tactics, and explore other topics related to coping with hearing loss.
Lipreading classes aim to be fun, relaxed, interesting and supportive. Lipreading, like many skills, takes time to learn, but can bring great benefits to the user, increasing confidence and encouraging independence.
Course cost: £45 for 9 lesson summer term
