Learn to Lipread

Do you have trouble hearing in a noisy background? Do you find yourself asking people to repeat themselves? Do you misunderstand what others are saying and respond inappropriately?

If you have a hearing loss, lipreading classes can help you to become more informed, more socially active, more confident and therefore more connected to those around you. Our lipreading tutor runs lively, stimulating, interactive weekly classes every Monday.
