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.
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
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
