There’s not much that I can do with you in this course that will allow you to feel some of the frustration that students with speech or language deficits encounter on a daily basis. But, I did come up with one simulation. For a period of 1 hour, I want you to make normal conversation, but during this hour, you are not to say a word that has the sound /r/ in it. You should do this at a time when you will have occasion to speak, however, you may not want to do this in the working environment. When you have finished the simulation, write a 2 page paper describing how the simulation affected you. Did it cause frustration in you? In others? What about your rate of speech? How long did it take you to form your thoughts?
