We know it's particularly tough for the hard of hearing people during Covid-19. Our normal lipreading classes have had to be postponed but the good news is that we are going on-line to offer lipreading classes via Zoom.
Our Lipreading Tutor, Helen, has two classes running for the Leslie Edwards Trust; Tuesday and Thursday mornings, from 10.30-11.30, weekly. Helen is clear that "using online technologies such as Zoom enables us to keep in contact and practice our vital lipreading and hearing loss management skills in a welcoming and supportive environment during the Covid-19 pandemic". Members who have joined describe the classes as informative and fun, giving each one the opportunity to share tips, keeping up and developing skills to enhance their social and professional lives... all with the aim of being able to cope better when lockdown finally eases. The classes are small to give each member an opportunity to get involved.
The other bonus to on-line classes is that anyone can join in... not just those who can get to our face-to-face sessions. The sessions can be accessed via smart phone, tablet, laptop or computer.
