Face Masks With Clear Window
NJSHA has partnered with New Jersey-based Denim & Tailor for sales and distribution of face mask with a clear window.
As a group of professionals that promotes communication, we understand that our professionals would not be able to properly communicate with many of our clients and/or students with the typical face masks on the market. The speech quality degradation, in combination with room noise/reverberation, renders speech close to unintelligible for many patients with language disorders and hearing loss. Therefore, they will need to rely on visual cues. Further, our clients/patients need to see our mouths during therapy.

How To Wear a Face Mask with a Clear Window
NJSHA President, Robynne Kratchman demonstrates how to wear a mask with a window.
Masks are made locally in New Jersey. These masks measure 5 inches x 2.5 inches. They fit over the head rather than behind the ears, therefore they can be used with hearing aids and other hearing aid devices that sit behind the ear.
It is recommended to hand wash masks as machine washing may damage the vinyl.
It has been suggested to use a drop of liquid dish detergent or a drop of shaving cream to spread over the inside of the mask to prevent fogging. It will need to be reapplied after washing.
Please follow all CDC recommendations for handling the masks and remember these are, according to the CDC, “better than nothing”. Please wash your hands before putting your mask on and after removing the mask.
These masks are made of cotton, vinyl and elastic material. They are not intended to replace traditional, tested, FDA-Approved PPE. The CDC recommends the use of cloth face masks as a last resort, when other PPE is not available. The decision to use this particular guide is your own. These masks have not been tested or proven to protect against illness. It is recommended to wash masks upon receiving them. Hand washing recommended.
