Lipreading Classes

Available in the following locations:
  • Dundee
  • Edinburgh City
  • Fife
  • Perth

Do you have to ask people to repeat what they say, to turn up the volume on your TV or find it difficult to follow conversations in a group situation?  Attending lipreading classes may help.

Deaf Action’s lipreading classes:

– are for adults aged 16+ with any degree of hearing loss and who use spoken English to communicate with other people.

– are taught by experienced teachers of lipreading to adults.  Our tutors will encourage you to have a laugh and relax

– can help you rebuild some of the confidence that you may have lost through your deafness.

– provide you with the opportunity for self-help, mutual support and friendship with people who understand your problems.

– help you learn about the different shapes that sounds make on the lips.

– help you learn about which sounds look the same on the lips and how to use context and other clues to help you tell the difference.

– include other communication tactics that can support lipreading and that encourage you to manage your hearing loss more effectively, eg the best place to position yourself in a group.

– offer opportunities to discuss problems and solutions to everyday situations such as having a meal in a restaurant or going to the doctors.

 

Whatever your degree of deafness… Whether or not you have hearing aids… Whatever your age… Why not give our lipreading classes a try?
