Hi, I am a Teacher of Deaf/Hard of hearing students. I work with elementary-aged students who need to see facial and speech cues for access to instruction and communication; cues that are not available with a cloth mask that covers the nose and mouth. As with all masks that claim to be clear, there are occasional times that the mask fogs up, despite buying the website's anti-fog spray. That said, I have ordered more so that when one fogs up, I can switch out mid-day for a fresh restart. I was disappointed that your purple color sold out as that is one of our school colors, but I'm hoping that speaks to your "smile mask" popularity and affording others the benefits it provides!
Mask is useful and window does not fog up too much. I had difficulties with my lips touching the screen when talking, it takes quite a bit of adjustment! I have not worn it for an extensive period yet.
I am a Speech-Language Pathologist in a public school system. I work primarily with early childhood special needs students this year, including a deaf child and several autistic children and numerous children with difficulty producing sounds. This mask allows them to clearly see my mouth, lips, teeth & tongue so they can see how to produce sounds.
Hi Felicia, Thank you for taking the time to review our product. We are so glad to hear the smile mask is allowing your students to see your mouth, lips, teeth, & tongue so they can understand clearly how to pronounce the sounds! Stay safe!
I work with deaf and hard of hearing students, the mask has minimal fog-up, and it doesn't fog-up my glasses! It does a great job of covering my whole face, which other clear masks do not offer. All of my students really enjoy being to see my face, and for my lip readers, it makes learning so much easier!
Hello, Thank you for taking the time to review our product. We are so excited to hear the Smile mask is working well for you in the classroom! and that there is minimal fogging so that your students can see your face and read your lips! Stay safe!
