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.

From the Author:

Dear Reader,

I have had the great priviledge of working on a cleft palate/craniofacial team and in a VPI clinic over the last 30 plus years. I have learned a great deal and I have had a significant amount of experience. At this point in my career, I am passionate about educating and helping others to provide quality care to patients affected by clefts, craniofacial anomalies, and velopharyngeal dysfunction (VPD).

The book entitled Cleft Palate and Craniofacial Anomalies was written by me (an active clinician) for other clinicians. My goal in writing this book was to help speech-language pathologists and other professionals involved in cleft care to benefit from the knowledge and experience that I have gained during my career.

I did my best to make this book easy to read and to understand. The print version of the 3rd edition also comes with an online site that includes 240 short videos and video case histories (more will be added over time). There are also "Cleft Notes," handouts for patients and parents, and review questions for each chapter. For those who teach at the university level, there is also an Instructor Site with PowerPoints for each chapter and test questions (with answers, of course).

This book has been a big part of my life's work. I hope that this book helps to educate and inspire you to also be passionate about the care of those who are affected by clefts, craniofacial anomalies, and VPD!
