Linda DeGuire, Professor Emerita of Mathematics from California State University, Long Beach, will be speaking about lip/speech reading, what it is and how it can help the hard of hearing person on Thursday, August 9th at the Long Beach/Lakewood Chapter of Hearing Loss Association at the Weingart Senior Center, 5220 Oliva Avenue, Lakewood, CA 90712 at 7:00 p.m.
Linda DeGuire, Professor Emerita of Mathematics, California State University, Long Beach, uses lip reading to assist her in her teaching. She taught math on all levels including elementary, middle, and high school as well as university level for 45 years, and continues to teach at CSULB during Spring semesters. However, her teaching career was threatened to be cut short about 12 years ago when her increasing hearing loss was negatively impacting her teaching. That’s when she found this chapter of Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA and formerly known as SHHH) and the lip reading classes. Since then, she has been an active member of the Chapter, serving as President for 2 years. She is now the facilitator of the free Wednesday lip reading class offered by the Long Beach/Lakewood chapter of HLAA, which resumes August 29th, 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. in the Craft Room at Weingart Senior Center. Beginners are welcome.
No reservations are necessary and admission is free. For more information, please call 562-438-0597 or visit www.hlalongbeachlakewood.org. Light refreshments are served. All meetings are captioned.

HLA meets at 6:30 p.m. on the second Thursday of each month at the Weingart Center, 5220 Oliva Avenue, Lakewood, CA. Program begins at 7:00 p.m.
