Children with cleft palate often require speech intervention post-surgical repair to normalize their phonological learning of the high intraoral pressure consonants. In many cases, SLPs may find it challenging to differentiate between speech characteristics that are a result of persisting velopharyngeal insufficiency and those that are learned, habituated speech behaviors. This webinar will address both structural and speech challenges that can co-exist in children with repaired cleft palate so that SLPs in all clinical settings can help these children achieve their best outcomes for speech production.

Learning Objectives:
You will be able to:

  • describe the four categories of speech misarticulations that can be habituated by children who have cleft palate
  • differentiate the obligatory speech characteristics related to structural differences that require surgical or orthodontic intervention from habituated speech behaviors that require intervention when treating children who have cleft palate
  • adopt appropriate treatment techniques for remediation of the four categories of speech misarticulations associated with cleft palate

Group registration note: A group registration entitles you to view this program one time, on one connection. Any number of people may watch and earn CE credit (ASHA CEUs/professional development hours). The person who will act as group leader should register on behalf of the group. The group leader will be able to play the webinar and distribute a link to group members so they can access handouts and the learning assessment to earn CE credit. The group leader needs to have, or create, a login to the ASHA website. The group registration option is a limited-time offer available for 1 year only.
