Lipreading courses

Do you have to ask people to repeat what they say, need to turn up the volume on your TV, or find it difficult to follow conversations in a group? Whatever your degree of deafness, give our lipreading courses a try.

Who are lipreading courses for?

Deaf Action lipreading courses are tailored for adults aged 16+ with any degree of hearing loss and who use spoken English to communicate with other people.

Who can teach lipreading?

All our courses are taught by experienced teachers of lipreading for adults. Our tutors encourage people to have a laugh and relax can help you rebuild some of the confidence people may have lost through deafness.

How can lipreading courses help?

Our lipreading courses can provide you with the opportunity for self-help, mutual support, and friendship with people who understand your problems. Specifically, you will learn:

  • The different shapes that sounds make on the lips
  • Which sounds look the same on the lips and how to use context and other clues to tell the difference
  • Communication tactics that can support lipreading and encourage you to manage hearing loss more effectively e.g. how best to position yourself in a group conversation
  • How to discuss problems and solutions to everyday situations such as having a meal in a restaurant or going to the doctor

Our lipreading courses are free to attend. Please register your interest using the form below.
