CHHA-NL offers 2 ways to learn lipreading – both online and in-person.
Speech (lip) reading is a skill that can improve overall communication and daily life. Learning to lipread has many benefits, including improved confidence and better communication skills. Classes help adults with hearing loss, but can also help:
- Family members
- Professionals, and
- Interested members of the community.
Lipreading is versatile and can be used in a variety of environments, whether you are at work, at home, or when you are out-and-about. Learn more about our lipreading classes below, including our Speechreading Level 1 course – an introduction to a variety of lip movements.
