I’m deep into the hands-on research for productive PPE to make speech therapy safe in the fall! In my first video, I tested out a few options for defogging the clear masks. Check out that video here.
*** When making decisions about what protective equipment to wear, please consult the CDC, your employer, and your state SLP/AUD organization. This video is just intended to inform you of options, not to determine if items provide enough coverage. The CDC continues to change the requirements for masks and shields, so refer to them for up to date info.
In my second round of experiments, I test out kid-friendly Face Shields, some more fog options (one good, one bad), and talk about the shape of masks!
I promised links in my video and they are here:
Kid-Friendly Face Shields: ShieldPals.com. One thing I forgot to mention in the video is that the headbands here are flexible, you can pull to stretch them and make them fit your head. See the FAQ on their website for more info.
My Favorite clear mask on Etsy: FabFindsSew
DIY Mask instructions: SSOL Smile Mask (Or search #SSOLSMILEMASKS on YouTube)
Please let me know if you try out the Shield Pals or the Clear Masks! I’d love to investigate some more PPE options for speech-language pathologists this fall. Leave a comment if you have any ideas.
