Speech reading course

18-hour course over two weekends, on June 4 and 5 and June 10, 11, and 12.

You can ‘hear’ better if you train your eyes to ‘listen’ to speakers by watching their faces and bodies to learn from their speech patterns, movements and gestures. This is speech reading and it is something we all do naturally.

But when we have a hearing loss, these are skills we need to develop further to help us fill in the communication gaps we miss in conversations.

To learn more about the dynamics of hearing and speech, enrol in the Speech Reading Course offered this June by the Comox Valley Hard of Hearing Branch. Linda Scarlett-Hauck, a qualified Canadian Hard of Hearing Association instructor, offers an 18-hour course over two weekends, at the Comox Valley Nursing Centre on June 4 and 5 and June 10, 11, and 12.

Space is limited to 12 participants.
