Jackie Corr, who has just completed the 8 week course says “The course was only a taster of what learning to lip read involves in terms of time and effort. The course has encouraged me to think seriously about availing of further avenues of overcome my hearing difficulties.

“I may never become a fluent lip reader but now I know and understand that there is help out there which will allow me to handle situations such as crowded rooms, attending drama productions, listening to lectures and church sermons that cause me great discomfort, embarrassment and frustration.

A new class is due to commence on Tuesday 1st May in Dobbin Street Community Centre, Armagh, BT61 7QQ at 2pm – 4pm.

Anyone wishing to attend the classes in Armagh will need to be assessed by an Audiologist and a Hearing Aid User beforehand. If you are interested in attending please contact Ramona on Tel: 079 4947 3392 Les Tel: 078 8058 2329 or
