I'm doing a presentation over speech/language impairment, and I need an activity to show how it feels or is to have a speech/language impairment. I can't come up with anything to save my life. My partner says we should have someone wear medical masks and have that person mouth what they are trying to say without sound (this shows how non verbal students understand but cant communicate to you what they mean) or have someone else repeat the same thing over and over again (this is how a student who stutters or repeats has trouble getting it out). Would those work? Thanks!
