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 qualified and NRCPD registered lipspeakers.
*In order to offer you the best communication experience, please be clear as to what type of lipspeaking service you would like. Either straightforward lipspeaking or lipspeaking with the aid of signs * The majority of ALS lipspeakers can also offer a Sign Supported Lipspeaking service.

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.
