Hearing loss courses
“I believe we have all conquered a massive walk up a very large mountain, and we're now starting to stand tall at the top. Without the support of Guide Dogs, I would still be sitting at the bottom, looking up, and wondering if I could." - Leigh Wallis, Participant in Guide Dogs Effective Management of Hearing Loss in the Workplace course.
Effective Management of Hearing Loss courses
Guide Dogs's Hearing Services has developed a range of specialised courses and information sessions to assist people with a hearing loss, and their families.
Conducted by our qualified, supportive staff, the courses involve weekly two-hour sessions which run for five weeks.
