What is the course about?

You will acquire the knowledge, skill and attitudes necessary to qualify as a teacher of lipreading to adults, most of whom will have an acquired hearing loss, though some may have been born deaf, but all use speech as their preferred method of communication.

What will we cover?

The course will include:
• The theory and practice of teaching lipreading to post-lingually deaf people
• The physiological processes and the psychology of the adult with an acquired hearing loss
• The effects of acquired hearing loss upon the communication of adults and ways of alleviating those effects
• Ways in which amplification, lipreading and communication are optimised by those with hearing loss
• The phonology of spoken English and its application to lipreading learning and teaching
• Specialist techniques and methodology for teaching lipreading
• Services and assistive aids to those with acquired hearing loss.

What will I achieve?
By the end of this course you should be able to...

Demonstrate knowledge of –
• how adults with an acquired hearing loss lipread
• how to recognise, select and use appropriate methods and techniques throughout a course in teaching lipreading to adults with an acquired hearing loss
• the importance of voice and devoice, and show how residual hearing can be combined with lipreading
• the factors affecting optimum conditions for lipreading in any situation
• how to encourage adults with acquired deafness to maximise these factors
• the effects of deafness on people
• how to explain the types and causes of deafness to adults with an acquired hearing loss
• how to explain relevant environmental aids to adults with an acquired hearing loss
• when other professional help is needed and how to make appropriate suggestions to adults with an acquired hearing loss
• the routes to obtaining a hearing aid and the roles of professionals in ENT/Audiology

To pass this course you will need to:
• Attend 80% of the course
• Successfully deliver an assessed teaching session
• Complete and pass written assignments.

What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?

No formal academic qualifications are required; although you will need to demonstrate that, you can research and write assignments. Acceptance onto the course follows a successful interview. Prior to interview, you should visit several lipreading classes to help gain some awareness of the role of a lipreading teacher with post-lingually deafened adults.
(Class information available on ATLA website
The aims of the interview are to find out if you:
• have clear lip patterns when not using your voice
• have a clear speaking voice
• are able to use English confidently and accurately in both written and spoken forms (you will complete a piece of written work during the interview)
• demonstrate an ability to understand and apply the work of the course
• are empathetic to the needs of adults with an acquired hearing loss

You will also need basic computer skills including word processing, using email, and researching topics on the internet, Google Classroom.

How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?

We use lectures, distance learning, demonstrations, group work, pair work, individual work, handouts, tests, teaching practice, tutorial, visits and observation.
You will also write assignments in your own time and compile a coursework portfolio containing session plans, teaching material, tutor assessments and self-evaluations.

The course uses Google Classroom, a Virtual Learning Environment. Resources, discussion and news forums will all be available on this site. Your assignments will be submitted and feedback will be given via Google.
You will be expected to do teaching practice in classes at the Build and will receive feedback from current lipreading teachers. You will also be required to observe a range of lipreading teachers.

Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?

• You will be given a reading list; some books may be available from the Build library
• Paper, pens, A4 files, dividers, memory stick and other stationery items
• Travel costs relating to course attendance and observations
• Cost of staying in London during lecture blocks (to be arranged by the student)
• Membership of Association of Teachers of Lipreading to Adults (ATLA). Student membership is currently free.

When I've finished, what course can I do next?

• Further courses in teaching adults
• Attend ATLA national and regional training days

Reviews below are by students who have attended this course, regardless of the course teacher. Please be aware you may not be booking onto a course with the same teacher.

There was an awful lot to learn in an academic year and I felt that I didn't always have enough time to research assignments as thoroughly as I would have liked. You would have your week in London and then every 2 weeks an assignment needed to be handed in, plus preparing for your teaching etc. Overall it was a brilliant experience and I would highly recommend it to anyone.
