Learning to lipread can be a daunting challenge, but an essential one for people who are deaf or have hearing loss. This month we will be releasing a report looking at the importance of lipreading classes; ‘Not just lip service: Why it’s time to recognise the value of lipreading and managing hearing loss support’.
As part of the report we sponsored a lipreading class. Fiona Pickett, the teacher of this class tells us about the challenges and emotions that face a new class.
