Scottish Course to Train Tutors of Lipreading


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.
