I first became involved with working with deaf people after a career change in 1999. I passed my BSL level 1 & 2, and became interested in developing my lipspeaking skills. I passed the ‘old’ level two in 2006, and was a member of the Class of 2011, qualifying as a level three lipspeaker early in 2012.
I now work freelance as a lipspeaker.

Karen Ward
Level 3

From the age of four Karen grew up with a deafened parent. My step-father (George) gradually started to lose his hearing in his teens. By the time he met my mum he had a bilateral servere to profound sensory-neural hearing loss. His deafness was caused by a hereditary condition. His father also was deafened and the same hereditary condition is now effecting my brothers hearing. From a very early age Karen was encouraged to ‘mouth it clearly’ and to ‘speak clearly’, who knew this would one day would be known as Lipspeaking!
