Evaluation and Treatment of Resonance Disorders and Velopharyngeal Insufficiency

October 25, 2018

Jones & Bartlett Learning

Sponsored by Jones & Bartlett Learning

Children with speech disorders and/or resonance disorders (hypernasality, hyponasality and cul-de-sac resonance) due to structural anomalies present challenges for speech-language pathologists (SLPs) in all settings. This free online vendor chat will provide you with current, practical information regarding speech and/or resonance disorder due to structural anomalies, such as cleft palate, velopharyngeal insufficiency, and dental malocclusion. You will be given information regarding simple low-tech and “no-tech” assessment procedures that will make you confident of your diagnosis of the problem. You will learn to make appropriate recommendations based on your diagnosis and will be confident about when to refer to an ENT, when to refer to a craniofacial team, and when therapy is appropriate. Finally, you will be given specific speech therapy techniques that are effective for different types of speech sound disorders, regardless of the initial cause. This will be a very interesting and informative chat with a craniofacial expert and author who has over 40 years of clinical experience:

  • Ann W. Kummer, PhD, CCC-SLP, ASHA Fellow
