Have you thought about becoming a Lipreading Teacher?
Have you thought about becoming a Lipreading Teacher?
31/05/2013
There are about 10 million people living in the UK with a partial or total hearing impairment.
Hearing loss can cause devastating communication difficulties in every aspect of a person's life including family, friends, and work.  Lipreading teachers can help hearing impaired people in many ways. 

Many hearing-impaired people have successfully trained as lipreading teachers.

We are looking for mature people who have a warm, caring and professional approach, speak clearly, are prepared to learn about the practical and psychological problems of hearing-impaired people and can communicate with them.

For more information on the course and cost please contact:

Manchester Centre for Deaf Studies

Email: enquiries@manchesterdeafstudies.org

Phone: 0161 832 0444

Message below is from the new Team Leader of the Manchester based training course.

'As a hearing aid user with acquired deafness who has attended lip reading classes, I found them of great benefit in regaining my confidence.  Through the classes I learnt new tactics for coping in difficult situations, informatin about useful organisations, information about environmental aids for the television and telephone and of course, my lipreading improved.  I also found I was not alone and made new friends.'
