An amazing simulation of what speech sounds like for hearing impaired student by the Vermont Center for Deaf and Hard of Hearing, Inc. You will be shocked! This simulation allows you to experience the challenges a hearing impaired student faces in the classroom, with and without a personal FM sytem. We had no idea it was this hard for hearing impaired students to hear what's being said in a typical classroom environment.
