Lipreading classes in and around Manchester

Many people with a hearing loss have benefitted from attending a lipreading class. Classes often include:

  • Lipreading practice in a friendly atmosphere
  • Strategies and tactics for difficult situations
  • A chance to share problems with others with similar difficulties
  • Information about assistive devices (such as flashing door bells)
  • Information on hearing aids and how to look after them
  • Information about useful organisations (such as Hearing Link or Action on Hearing Loss)

There are several classes in and around the Manchester area including Altrincham, Ashton, Bury, Manchester (Withington), Oldham and Stretford.
