The craniofacial team recognizes that communication with local care providers is essential for the best outcomes for our children. This includes consultation with school or local speech/language pathologists. The craniofacial team speech/language pathologists and team coordinator are always willing to review treatment plans and assist with the development of appropriate therapy goals.
Appropriate goals and therapy techniques are vital especially for the child with cleft palate. If therapy has plateaued, or further evaluation is indicated, including assessment using nasoendoscopy or videofluoroscopy, the team coordinator will work with all involved to insure timely referral and assessment.
