The combination of both have proved to dramatically improve conversation understanding. In addition we invite qualified people to address members of the Group as well as the interested public to be brought up to date on technological improvements of Hearing and Listening devices at no cost to the public.
Lessons are held every Wednesday morning during the school term. The lessons are in two periods: 9.30 am to 10.30 am Lip-reading, 10.30 to 11.00 am morning tea and 11.00 to 11.30 am introductory Auslan sign language.
