Where my journey to become a lipreading teacher began
About lipreading classes
I work together with The Central England Lipreading Support Trust (CELST) which was founded in order to raise funds to provide lipreading courses for adults to help them manage their hearing loss, in a safe and supportive environment with like-minded people.
Do you have a hearing loss?
Hearing loss can affect more than just your ability to hear, it can lead to a lack of confidence, a feeling of isolation, loss of self-esteem and even depression. It can have affect relationships and your ability to work.
Acquired hearing loss does not descriminate, it affects people from all walks of life, men and women of all ages. All are welcome to join classes.
What will you learn?
I am a qualified, ATLA registered lipreading teacher and teach in small supportive groups, . Each lesson lasts for two hours, with a mixture of lipreading practice exercises, to help you recognise lip shapes, with some supporting background theory, together with strategies to help you cope and manage your hearing loss. There is also shared information about hearing aids and other hearing devices and helpful technology.
No previous knowledge or experience of lipreading is needed
Classes are relaxed, friendly and fun, with a maximum of 12 people in a class. There are no tests, all you need to bring is a little enthusiasm and possibly a sense of humour...
