Losing all or part of your hearing can have a knock on effect in so many parts of our lives. If we can’t communicate with others it is very difficult and frustrating. Learning to lipread can help to break down the communication barrier.
We hold weekly sessions on learning how to lipread. In a safe and comfortable environment, a lipreading tutor takes the group through lip motions and sound, covering various topics.
Our venue has wheelchair access and disabled amenities.
Everyone has different levels of hearing loss ranging from partial to full loss. Wendy (our tutor) takes this into account when delivering her sessions.
Confidence grows as the communication barrier is broken down.
Learning the shapes that lips make for different sounds and how to help fill in missed words can be incredibly useful for someone who has hearing loss, especially in noisy environments. Anecdotal evidence shows just how much of an impact lip-reading can have on someone’s life. It prevents social isolation and improves confidence and independence. It keeps people in work and has even been known to save marriages. Lip-reading is a key part of the rehabilitation process for hearing loss, so classes are essential for many people whose hearing has deteriorated.
