Last October, I blogged about the lack of lip reading classes locally
Well, there is some good news. The Trafford Hard of Hearing Group have begun a new session of in demand Lip-reading classes in Sale.
The Trafford Hard of Hearing Group’s primary function is to provide free lip-reading classes for people who have hearing loss. As the name suggests, they cater primarily for residents in the Trafford area, but do have members from further afield. The Group was formed when lip-reading classes ceased to be subsidised because lip-reading was no longer deemed a “life skill”. It is now categorised a “recreational” skill.
The Trafford Hard of Hearing Group rely entirely upon grants from various sources to fund their activities. They engage the services of professionally qualified lip-reading tutor, Ron Rolph, and currently run two levels of courses (beginners and intermediate). These are held weekly in Sale, which is easily accessible by public transport. Details of the classes are as follows:
The Trafford Hard of Hearing Group
Beginners Classes – 1:00pm to 3pm
