Face Shields

The Deaf, hard of hearing and audiologists need face shields to communicate. Let’s help them out.

In sign language, facial expressions serve as cues for grammar and tone. Additionally, lip reading is often essential to both Deaf and Hard of Hearing individuals to supplement auditory understanding.

When it comes to protecting oneself against COVID-19, wearing a face mask fully covers the mouth, which can severely limit communication. The face shield, with its transparent visor, becomes an excellent form of protection for audiologists and the community alike.

Tinkerine and Wavefront Centre have partnered to offer face shields to Deaf and hard of hearing individuals as well as the general public. Tinkerine will be donating 20% of the proceeds from these face shields to Wavefront Centre to help support our programs and services.
