Cleft Palate and Craniofacial Anomalies: Effects on Speech and Resonance is the only book of its kind that covers both oral and facial anomalies and cleft palate. Designed as a how-to guide for the practicing clinician, this book emphasizes what students, clinicians new to this population, and any member of a cleft palate team need to know in the workplace. It includes information on common craniofacial anomalies, associated anomalies, and genetic syndromes. Everything from basic information on anatomy, physiology, and embryology of the face and oral cavity to oral, dental, and ENT anomalies and their effects on speech, resonance, and feeding are covered. The evaluation section includes the perceptual evaluation of speech and resonance, the intraoral examination, and instrumental assessment procedures. The treatment section includes surgical procedures, prosthetic devices, and therapies designed to address speech, resonance, and velopharyngeal dysfunction. The need for multidisciplinary team assessment and treatment is also emphasized throughout.
