2 Ways To Learn Speech (Lip) Reading This Fall

- News Story

We have exciting news! Starting this Fall, CHHA-NL will be offering Speechreading Level 1 both online and in-person. 

Speech (lip) reading is a skill that can improve overall communication and daily life. It takes practice but speechreading is a rewarding skill. Classes help adults with hearing loss (as well as family members, friends, professionals, and interested members of the community) develop communication skills to build confidence at home, at work, or during leisure time.

Speechreading Level 1 is an introduction to a variety of lip movements – those that are the easiest to identify on the mouth and face.
