Continuing Education Courses for Cleft Palate

Cleft Lip/Palate Webcourse (7 Hour Lecture)

End Date:

Ongoing

CEUs Offered:

No CEU credit available

Format:

Audiovisual lecture and exam

Provider:

http://www.cleftlippalateaudiovisuallecture.org/course.html

Course Description:

This course will present recognized treatment concepts from the clinical sciences of dentistry, medicine, speech, audiology, psychology, genetics, ethics and biology so that all aspects of treatment of cleft palate and other craniofacial anomalies can be scrutinized from long-term clinical experience using objective treatment records of serial casts, lateral cephs and photographs. The lecture examines the face with a cleft in all aspects as a biologic continuum from birth through postnatal growth and development to maturity at various stages of treatment.  It brings together treatment concepts from clinicians who have been seeking answers to the multifaceted problem of cleft palate, regarding its embryopathogenesis, craniofacial growth, maxillary orthopedics, surgery, protraction of the maxilla, dental prostheses, secondary alveolar bone grafting, speech, hearing, genetics, psychosocial development and craniofacial surgery.  The conclusions reached are the result of well-documented cases used in well-controlled published clinical research

Speech Therapy for "Cleft Palate Speech" and Sequelae of Velopharyngeal Dysfunction

Start Date:

Ongoing

End Date:

Ongoing

CEUs Offered:

ASHA/0.1 Intermediate, Professional; CASLPA/1.0

Format:

Recorded and exam

Provider:

SpeechPathology.com

Course Description:

This course is geared toward speech-language pathologists who work with children with speech sound disorders, particularly those related to cleft palate or velopharyngeal dysfunction. The course will cover the types of velopharyngeal dysfunction and the effects on speech. A paradigm will be given for what types of distortions can be corrected with therapy and what speech distortions require physical management (i.e., surgery). The bulk of the presentation will be on specific therapy techniques which can be used for children with compensatory productions or other types of speech sound disorders. Based on the principles of motor learning, the importance of feedback and daily practice at home will be stressed. This course will be enhanced by many short videos to demonstrate procedures.

Learning Outcomes
 

You will be able to:
 

  • outline the clinical motivations for acoustic analysis of the human voice;
  • outline the various signal types that are appropriate for acoustic analysis;
  • describe the key acoustic measures of vocal function and judge their clinical utility.
  • describe the quantitative and qualitative nature of spectral moment analysis (SMA) as a speech assessment technique;
  • describe the utility of SMA for the evaluation of fricative production, specifically;
  • list several ways that SMA could be utilized to document speech outcomes in an objective fashion for children with repaired cleft palate.

Course Description:

Speech production can be significantly affected by abnormalities of the oral, dental and pharyngeal structures. Cleft palate, dental and occlusal anomalies, ankyloglossia, enlarged tonsils and adenoids, and maxillary retrusion are just a few of the anomalies that commonly affect articulation and resonance.
