This is the only text of its kind that covers both oral and facial anomalies in addition to cleft lip and palate. Designed for students, clinicians new to this population, and any member of a cleft palate team, this book emphasizes what practicing clinicians need to know in the workplace. Current research and best practices are summarized for readers. From basic information on anatomy, physiology, and embryololgy of the face and oral cavity to oral, dental and ENT anomalies and their effects on speech, resonance, and feeding this book includes information on common craniofacial anomalies, associated anomalies, and genetic syndromes. 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 emphasized throughout with contributions from members of a working cleft palate team.
