Having a voice disorder can be challenging, but having to wear a mask can make it even harder with the additional effort required to project your voice. With these awareness masks, you can let people know that you have a voice disorder without having to say a word.
Our NSDA volunteer leaders provided valuable input on the design and wording. Special thanks to Carol Doles for the original inspiration and to Nancy Peltier who helped to source a vendor!
PLEASE BEAR WITH ME | This mask says, “Please bear with me, I have a voice disorder” and a little bear dots your nose! For quick reference, we included the NSDA website, dysphonia.org, to help raise awareness.
NOT SICK |This mask says, “Not Sick, I have a voice disorder” and for quick reference, we included the NSDA website, dysphonia.org, to help raise awareness.
SPEAK OUT | This mask say, “Speak Out for Spasmodic Dysphonia and Related Voice Conditions” and for quick reference, we included the NSDA website, dysphonia.org. Family and friends can wear this mask too to help support a loved one with a voice condition.
