Cleft-Related Speech and Resonance - Ms. Kim-Loan Luu, Speech Pathologist, Children's Memorial Hermann Hospital, University of Texas - Houston Medical School.

Caring for individuals with cleft requires specialized team care. Alt‐hough lifelong care is required for most patients, speech language pathologists play an integral role in provision of care in the early years to facilitate normal speech development, remediate mis-learned speech, and maximize velopharyngeal function for speech resonance. Appropriate SLP intervention will serve to help individuals with cleft conditions reach their full speech and resonance potential.
