This course has been developed in response to a perceived requirement to train tutors of lipreading in Scotland because of:
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.
We are now open for applications for our new 2019 Scottish Course!
We plan to run the course which will be six weekends between January and September.
You must be able to attend all six study weekends to complete the course. The weekends are full days Saturday and Sunday and we hope to use Forth Valley Sensory Centre for the venue.
Unfortunately we cannot at this moment set down specific dates. We must have the response and confirmation from potential new tutors willing to partake in the course before we can book the venue. We hope to be confirming dates asap once applications are received or at the latest around September 2018.
This is an intensive course which involves a lot of study and course work to be completed between study weekends. The course work-load is demanding.
If you have already completed an application for last years course, please get in touch at the e-mail below but there should be no need to re-do your application unless your details have changed.
Please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
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.
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.
