The Association of Lipspeakers (ALS)

The Association of Lipspeakers (ALS)

There are many occasions when a person with a hearing loss may benefit from using a lipspeaker.
Some examples of this are medical appointments and group or business meetings; in fact anything where it is very important or helpful for the person to know what is being said.

"A lipspeaker is a hearing person who has been professionally trained to be easy to lipread. Lipspeakers reproduce clearly the shapes of the words and the natural rhythm and stress used by the speaker. They also use facial expression, gesture and, if requested, finger spelling, to aid the lipreader’s understanding. Lipspeakers can also use voice if the deaf person wishes to use any residue hearing that they have. This practice is known as lipspeaking. Some lipspeakers have sign language skills and can offer lipspeaking with sign support, (Sign Supported English), if requested by the lipreader."

For more details please look at this website and contact the Association.
