Do you have difficulty following a conversation even though you may wear a hearing aid? If you have become deaf or hard of hearing then practising lipreading can really improve communication. Coming to a lipreading class can help you learn to manage your hearing loss in a relaxed atmosphere. Get information about the latest equipment, services and support.
Come and get some free extra practice on a short lipreading course to give trainee lipreading teachers additional teaching practice. This course will be taught by trainees towards the end of their training, under supervision of one of the teaching team. This will be a mixed ability group - all levels welcome, whether you have attended classes before or have no previous lipreading experience. The course is delivered in spoken English and not BSL.
The course will cover the features of age-related hearing loss and how these relate to what, and how, older people hear and understand. Participants will learn communication strategies so that older people can understand them better.
This 5 week practical course is aimed at adults with acquired hearing loss who experience hearing difficulties in everyday situations. Partners, family members and friends are also encouraged to attend.
