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, Chorlton-cum-Hardy, Oldham and Stretford.

We would always suggest that you contact the class tutor or centre before you go.
