For anyone who is hard of hearing and particularly for those who find themselves struggling to keep up with conversations. It is a challenge in noisy environments or when multiple people are speaking, to hear every word. There are blanks that we need to fill in order to understand what the conversation is about. One way to help us to keep up with our friends and family's conversations is to learn the skill of lipreading.
Deaf & Hear Alberta now offers a comprehensive course for the hard of hearing individual to assist with communication through lipreading. This introductory video explains the basic principles of lip reading and the reasons to take the classes. The skill of lipreading is a learned skill and takes time and patience and practice to learn.
These classes are taught online by a certified instructor and the thorough workbook that is included allows participants to practice at their own pace between classes.
The course covers 4 complete modules and is taught in 12 live - interactive online sessions. Recordings of each session will be available afterwards for practice.
Lipreading is one tool that is used to help with communication. The classes teach how to use context, body language and speech patterns to "fill in the blanks" of conversations.
All you will need to participate is access to the internet and a computer or laptop to attend the classes.
