Learn Lipreading

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. 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.
