Welcome to the Association of Lipspeakers

The Association of Lipspeakers (ALS) is the professional body that represents lipspeakers. We aim to promote lipspeaking and its good practice and encourage the further development of lipspeaking as a communication service.

This site should enable you to find and successfully use lipspeakers, whether through a registered agency or by direct contact with lipspeakers in your region.

What’s New

Membership for 2013 – 2014 is now due!

The members of the Association of Lipspeakers have a well-respected reputation for maintaining a professional standing amongst their peer groups and service users. It is with that in mind that we would like to encourage all qualified Lipspeakers to please accept the invitation to renew their membership for 2014. The cost for annual membership remains at £40.

Please visit ‘Membership‘ for more details!

Useful Information

ALWAYS ask to see the name badge of your lipspeaker. All NRCPD registered lipspeakers will have one. This ensures quality and allows you to complain about the quality if need be to the NRCPD.








Somebody wearing an ‘ALS badge‘ is not necessarily a qualified and registered lipspeaker.

Training Courses

ALS are working hard to try and provide lipspeaker training courses for the coming year 2014. We are no longer taking applications and are currently awaiting Signature verification of the new course which is expected to start July/August 2014.

For more information please see Selection Day.
