Why Learn to Lipread?

Learning how to lipread can be a very effective aid to communication. If you find that you are missing words in everyday conversation, then it's entirely possible that your hearing is deteriorating. For most of us, this happens as we get older. There's no escaping it. If you find that you are frequently asking people to repeat themselves, straining to hear without avail or finding it easier just to disassociate yourself… then you may benefit from learning how to lipread.

Lipreading can be immensely useful. We focus on the different shapes that the lips make when producing certain sounds. It is by learning the shapes we can sometimes pick out words that we might have missed. With practice and perseverance, we learn how to "fill in the gaps", so that we are able to pick up the gist of what is being said. However, we need to be realistic. It is extremely unlikely that you will be able to lipread every single word. At best, we Just might be able to catch meaning where we may have missed it before. This may not sound like much, but it can mean the difference between becoming isolated, or continuing to be an active part of society.
