This Mask Has a Clear Panel For Speech Pathologists and Hard-of-Hearing Patients
As the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is recommending that all Americans wear some kind of face covering when out in public, there's a particular community who are struggling to find a new normal with wearing face masks: people who are deaf or hard of hearing. Speech pathologists also need their patients to read their lips as a form of education, so wearing a mask provides a unique set of challenges. Thankfully, though, we found this Mask With Window ($10) on Etsy, which is a really good start.
The face covering has a plastic "window" that allows other people to see your mouth, though you're still covered up. If you know someone who's deaf or hard of hearing, or someone who's a speech pathologist, this makes an incredible gift. Plus, it's nice to see people's smiles.
