Cleft Palate Speech: What Do I Hear? What Do I Do? (On Demand Webinar)

Coming soon! Sign up now and watch at your leisure between September 30, 2019, and September 27, 2020.

Or register for the live version of this program, airing September 27, 2019, 1:00 p.m.–3:00 p.m. Eastern time.

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.
