Cleft Palate Crash Course for School Based and Early Childhood Intervention Providers
The goal of this course is to provide foundational information on the causes,
and medical diagnosis of cleft palate, as well as a review of the anatomy and
physiology of key structures. The roles, functions, and purpose of the cleft palate team will also be discussed. Finally, students will learn and practice differential diagnosis, assessment, and interventions for children with cleft palate, craniofacial disorders, and hypernasality due to velopharyngeal incompetence/insufficiency.
A bachelor's degree in a Communicative Disorder related field is required.
