SLP Corner: Resources for Treating Clients With Craniofacial Differences
[Source: Leader Live Blog]
July is officially Cleft and Craniofacial Awareness month, but I celebrate craniofacial awareness every month.
Working with a team of more than a dozen medical and dental professionals, I follow nearly 2,000 patients with craniofacial differences through yearly evaluations, from infancy to young adulthood or beyond. After working in the profession for 28 years—when did THAT happen?!—evaluating and treating patients with craniofacial differences is second nature to me. So I sometimes forget that when these patients go home, the speech-language pathologists helping them might not know about the same strategies or resources I do.
