Lip Reading Course

Our Lip-reading course is delivered by a fully trained and accredited Lip-reading tutor.

As a society people are now living longer, however, unfortunately hearing loss is synonymous with ageing. This tends to make individuals with a hearing loss feel isolated and often excluded from friends and family, which in turn can lead to loss of confidence and self esteem.

This course is ideal for people experiencing hearing loss whether hearing aid users or not.

  • Basic Lip-reading skills to assist with word recognition

  • Increased confidence in social situations
  • The reduction of feelings of isolation
  • Covering different and effective aspects of communication
