Courses and Workshops

We run a programme of Courses and Workshops.  

Courses aim to equip delegates with a new skill and additional knowledge.  They are usually, but not always, for those professionals who support our patients.

Workshops are an opportunity to try equipment and practice new skills.  Workshops are usually to help our patients get the best from their Cochlear Implants. 

The courses and workshops are FREE to USAIS patients and those who support them


Courses for those who provide support

We run a training programme for professionals who support our service users.  The programme includes the following:

Courses for patients

Introduction to Lipreading (10 week course)

Lipreading is a vital communication skill for many people with hearing loss.  It involves watching and recognising lip shapes and facial movements of speakers to gain a better understanding of what they are saying.

Our experienced lipreading teacher runs this 10-week introduction to lipreading course.  The next 10 week course will commence on Thursday 3rd October 2019 for two hours from 10 am to 12 noon.  The course will continue, at the same time, over the next 9 weeks.  For more information follow this link.
