Scottish Course to Train Tutors Of Lipreading

Header

Course Introduction

This course has been developed in response to a perceived requirement to train tutors of lipreading in Scotland because of:

  • the increasing numbers of people of all ages who have an acquired  hearing loss;
  • the current shortage of people with training and qualifications;
  • the need for a course that takes into account Scotland's unique geography, demography, culture and political structure.

Aim of course
The aim of this course is to enable people to become qualified Tutors of Lipreading for those adults who have an acquired hearing loss and whose preferred mode of communication is spoken language.

Ideas for Ears, a not-for-profit social enterprise on a mission to help people hear well

We are circulating the questionnaire to help gather data to understand and quantify any issues that people are experiencing.  

Can you spare a few minutes to answer some questions?

Not being able to hear conversation clearly during a phone call is an issue faced by many. We know from work that we’ve done already around phone use that unfamiliar accents, background noise and variable clarity or volume can cause frustration, and sometimes even fear, when having phone calls.  The more responses we get to the questionnaire, the more data and evidence we will have available to influence the industry specialists about where to put their time and money.

Everyone who completes the questionnaire has the chance to win £300 in Amazon vouchers! Closing date for entering the prize draw is midnight 13th August 2017.

Any support you can offered will be greatly welcomed.

ATLA 40th Birthday Celebrations!

 

Five Scottish tutors (and one husband!) attended the ATLA 40th birthday celebrations. We had a fascinating tour of the Palace of Westminster visiting both the House of Lords and the House of Commons gathering leaflets and information as we went along. The ATLA this is your life followed in Committed Room 9 The Peel Room.

Did you know that there was a programme on the BBC in the early 1980s all about lipreading? It's amazing what you find out on these occasions.

We then adjourned to the Wesley Cafe for lunch. 

What a great day was had by all, networking and chatting with other tutors.
