Coping with hearing loss course – starts tomorrow

Usually you will find me teaching face to face lipreading and hearing loss awareness to all sorts of people.  People with hearing loss, their relatives, their friends or support staff.  With the onset of this horrendous virus all that stopped very abruptly in March.  Its been a steep learning curve for all of us and as a result, I’ve not really been in touch with any of my students unless they are in contact on social media. 

I’ve had to learn how to use zoom, how to use other platforms to assist with teaching online and use new technology to get similar results and keep in touch with others.  I know I’ve missed friends and family and I’m sure its been really hard for anyone who has hearing loss.

I’m pleased to say that I’ve managed to get to grips with all the learning and am now starting to teach online.  Not got to lipreading yet but I have been doing some hearing loss awareness and supporting activities.  I’m teaching as I usually do for the WEA (Workers Education Association).  There is a course starting tomorrow, and you can join it if you wish.  Here are the details.  Hearing loss can make people feel isolated and affect relationships. For the first time, our popular ‘Coping with Hearing Loss’ course is running online. Learn to navigate the support available for yourself or a family member, or someone you support, in this free and friendly course.
