A ‘Lipspeaker’ is a hearing person who has been professionally trained to be easy to lipread.
Lipspeaking With Additional Sign is for those who prefer to lipread but may use some BSL to help support the meaning.
I am a qualified and NRCPD registered Level 3 Lipspeaker with Level 2 British Sign Language (BSL). I provide communication support for the Deaf and hard of hearing community, whose preferred communication is lipreading with or without additional signs to support the meaning. I hold public indemnity insurance and have an enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) check.
