Description

CLEFT PALATE & CRANIOFACIAL ANOMALIES: EFFECTS ON SPEECH AND RESONANCE 3E is the only book of its kind to cover both oral and facial anomalies, as well as cleft palate. Designed as a how-to guide for the practicing clinician, this book emphasizes what students need to know in the workplace to evaluate and treat individuals with speech disorders related to structural anomalies. Common craniofacial anomalies, associated anomalies, and genetic syndromes are also included. There is basic information on anatomy, physiology, and embryology of the face and oral cavity. The book covers how oral, dental, and ENT anomalies affect speech, resonance, and feeding. The evaluation section includes practical information on how to conduct a perceptual evaluation of speech and resonance and an intraoral examination. An overview chapter on instrumental procedures is provided for students, and chapters on how to perform and interpret these procedures is provided for clinicians. The treatment section includes surgical procedures and the use of prosthetic devices. Specific speech-therapy techniques are described for the treatment of speech errors associated with resonance disorders and velopharyngeal dysfunction. The need for multidisciplinary team assessment and treatment is also stressed. This book is easy to read to maximize learning. Many quality illustrative videos and video case studies are used to provide practical knowledge on how to evaluate and treat affected individuals.
