Lipreading & Managing Hearing Loss

Improve communication and manage your hearing better with our Lipreading classes.

You are likely to be naturally lipreading in many conversations already. Add to your skills by joining our lipreading classes and feel your confidence grow.

Classes are led by a qualified Lipreading Tutor & Teacher of the Deaf, in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere.

...and there will be plenty of good humour (and cake!) along the way too.

'The teacher, Tracey, is simply fantastic and a truly lovely person. She is a very sympathetic teacher, with a class of generally older people, with varying levels of hearing loss.'

'Whilst not able to practice in real life, the course has increased my awareness of facial expressions and lip movements in others.'

'Every session I attended was excellent - fun, interesting, helpful and well worthwhile - it was also good to be with others with similar hearing problems.'

'Attending the Lipreading course was enlightening and inspirational. It has been a great benefit to me helping to manage daily hearing challenges.'

'The course breaks down into "necessities"... This knowledge is then applied and practised in the class using examples of situations that will be encountered in real life. There is a strong sense of support between the members of the class and this allows individuals to make mistakes during exercises and not be judged.'
