This course provides the opportunity for individuals with hearing loss (and their partners) to build upon the foundation of effective communication skills introduced in Speechreading Level 1. Students will continue to improve speechreading efficiency through individual and group activities. Students will demonstrate more confident and assertive behaviour, and will conduct conversations that demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and attitude that support effective communication.
This course provides the practical experience to master the strategies and behaviour changes introduced in Level 1.
Lectures, class discussions, role-play scenarios, and multimedia presentations are utilized to observe, imitate, and practice effective communication behaviours. Individualized and self-paced speechreading skill development occurs each week in the computer lab. This course meets once per week for twelve weeks.
