Coping with hearing loss in a hearing world

Soundz Off Directory


Lipreading is a very useful skill which many hard-of-hearing people do not realise they actually already have!  If you wish to improve your skills, you may be able to attend lip-reading classes run by your audiology department, via hearing loss charities or by private providers.

There is a huge amount of information already out there to help you and we constantly update our list to bring you links to the latest information, equipment and news about all things hard of hearing (HoH). We hope you find the Directory useful and if you have any useful links that you'd like us to add, please contact us.
