Lipreading Instruction

Lipreading Instruction:  Classes

Lipreading classes in Calgary. I'm teaching the classes below on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.  Sign up for one, or take them all! No experience is necessary--difficulty level will be tailored to participants' needs. If you've already taken lipreading classes through the Hearing Strategies program, this content will still be fun and challenging for you! 

Classes are held at Deaf and Hear Alberta, 63 Cornell Rd. NW. Call 403-284-6200 to register. Cost is $49.00 for each four-hour class.

The next series of classes will be as follows:


September 17, 2016: P,B,M sounds

October 1, 2016: F,V sounds

October 15, 2016: Vowels and Numbers

October 29, 2016: W, Wh sounds


Here are some comments from class participants:

If you don't live in Calgary, learn to read lips with the Seeing and Hearing Speech program, an interactive CD-ROM. A study guide is available to help you get the most benefit from this extensive program.
