My sister in law is the long term care Adminstrator for the DD community. One of their sensitivity trainings involved taking a starbusrt candy and placing it on the middle back of your tongue. Now try and talk to one another. This is supposeg to emulate what individuals with DS feel like when they are speaking. I guess it has to do with tongue and palette.
A group of us did it. It was kind of difficult to speak and our voice and ability to speak did change.
Let me know if anyone does it and what you thought. Kim
