4 Reasons Why You Should Start Learning to Lipread


1. Build Confidence 


Lipreading involves taking charge of a situation and picking up on a variety of cues. Lipreading allows people to feel more confident in themselves and their abilities. Also, when someone knows that they are not missing out on a conversation, they will automatically feel more confident.

2. Be Independent 


Independence is a big part of lipreading for many of the people who learn it. By learning how to fill in the gaps of speech, people feel as though they are no longer reliant on others to ensure they can participate in everyday conversation. This means they can get back to the things they enjoy doing without the fear of missing out.
