If you wear hearing aids but still find yourself struggling in background noise, our introduction to lip reading course may be for you.

Judi, our lip reading teacher, is a fully qualified teacher for ATLA (Association of Teachers of Lipreading to Adults) and leads our 6 week course at our clinic in Whitstable.

Judi has a proven track record of teaching individual and group sessions on lip reading so you will be in the best possible hands.

This 6 week course is offered free of charge to our Hearing Care Club members and is £60 for non-members.

Stay Connected

Socialising with friends and family are often our most treasured moments. But sometimes hearing loss can hold us back.

By learning skills such as recognising lip patterns and facial expressions you can be a part of the conversation again.

Build confidence

Do you feel anxious before a social event? This is not uncommon for individuals with hearing loss or deafness.

Open up your world again by learning to lip read. It will help boost your confidence at tackling those difficult listening situations.
