Cleft Palate Speech and Resonance: An Audio and Video Resource is a clinical tool to train students and clinicians to reliably identify articulation, resonance, nasal air emission, and voice aspects of cleft palate speech. The resource contains high-quality audio and video recordings of speech samples and case studies that represent a variety of speech symptoms associated with cleft palate. In addition, it includes a brief overview of the velopharyngeal mechanism and a protocol for the clinical assessment of patients with cleft-related speech disorders. All information presented is evidence based and reflects the most current knowledge on cleft palate speech.
