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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Ann has done a great job pulling together material for a course".

"I use this text by Kummer (2nd Edition). I found this text was written in language that was accessible to the typical graduate student and while the text is based on current research and clinical practice, as evidenced by the extensive bibliographies, it is clear that it is written from a clinical rather than research focus".

    I use this textbook in my graduate-level teaching at the Univers

    I use this textbook in my graduate-level teaching at the University of Missouri and highly recommend it to other professors. Information is detailed, clearly presented, and cited appropriately. Complex information is summarized, current, and well organized. The Speech Therapy chapter has General Principles and specific therapy techniques that are "pure gold" for the treatment of speech disorders related to clefts and/or VPD. PowerPoints are provided for each chapter, which is a huge help for professors. "Cleft Notes" serve as a great teaching tool for students because they provide an opportunity for active learning. There are many handouts that can be printed and provide detailed, valuable information for patients and families. Case-Based learning, through over 240 short videos, is a brilliant teaching-tool for graduate students or practicing clinicians. Plus, chapters can be purchased independently for professional development. In summary, this edition is even better than the previous editions and has many new features that will greatly help professors, students, and practicing clinicians.
