A parent of a child with a surgically repaired cleft palate should seek the services of a Speech-Language Pathologists who works extensively with children. Speech therapy is provided for cleft patients who don’t speak normally. Children who sound "nasal" and audible puffs of air that escapes from the nose while talking are benefited with speech therapy. Even if the child does not have articulation errors, the degree of nasal emission may causes speech to be difficult to understand and present social problems. Regular expert speech language pathologists are present for therapy on all week days at the hospital.
