Evidence-Based Assessment and Intervention for Cleft Lip and Palate (WEB3210)

Course Description


The articles included in this journal self-study include evidence-based assessment and intervention practices for children with cleft lip and/or palate, a specialized population with which many SLPs have limited experience. The first article describes a clinical measure for quantifying nasal air emission using a nasal accelerometer. The second article illustrates the developmental timeline of typical velopharyngeal function in speech production and then compares it to what is seen in toddlers with repaired cleft. The third article offers treatment efficacy data for a naturalistic intervention with phonological emphasis for toddlers with cleft lip and/or palate. The final article examines a number of factors that can influence language development in internationally adopted children with cleft lip and/or palate.

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • describe a new objective measure for quantifying nasal air emission
  • summarize developmental differences in velopharyngeal function between toddlers with repaired cleft and their typically developing peers
  • describe a naturalistic intervention with phonological emphasis for language delays associated with cleft lip and/or palate
  • explain predictors of delayed language for internationally adopted children with cleft lip and/or palate
