The single biggest barrier facing people with a hearing loss is difficulty with communication and understanding what is being said. The See Hear Centre runs lipreading classes. This is not just about learning the skills to lipread, it’s also about meeting and sharing experiences in an environment where everybody understands how your hearing loss affects your everyday life.
