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.
