Stuttering is both visible as well as invisible. On the surface, no one can tell that you stutter. But each person has certain secondary characteristics that can signal your way of speech. Facial expressions are an important part of this.
A face mask covers part of these expressions. Which can make speaking a whole new experience. Currently, face masks are increasingly becoming a fact of life, posing a whole new series of challenges for people who stutter. In this video, Courtland Crain talks about the issues with stuttering in a face mask and about adapting to a new reality.
