When: Thursday 27 October 2011, 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Time Zone: (GMT-05:00) Eastern Time (US and Canada)
Some people may be naturally better at it, just as some people have a knack for carpentry or music. But all people with hearing loss, whether congenital or acquired, can learn to be a better speechreader, for better communication. Speechreading is a bit like a puzzle. What do I see on her face? What do I hear her saying? What’s the subject we’re discussing? Put it all together and – eureka! This all happens almost without our realizing it, and the more we practice, the better we get.
This webinar will also include information on speechreading courses and ideas for practice in everyday life. Participants should have a small mirror available to practice lip movements during the course of the webinar.
