Intensity Scale
LIGHT- You can talk easily. Effort is minimal

MODERATE- You can talk in complete sentences. Effort is noticeable but comfortable.

SOMEWHAT HARD- You find it difficult to talk in complete sentences. Your breathing is labored.

HARD- You cannot talk in complete sentences. Effort requires concentration to maintain, but is not maximal or a strain.
