Flashcards in 2.7 Developmental Aspects Deck (8)
1

In regards to developmental aspects in children with cleft, what are early phonological processes (birth to 3)?

(3)

- Deletion of final consonant
- Syllable reduction
- Backing

2

In regards to developmental aspects in children with cleft, what should we know about articulation/phonology? (birth to 3)?

(1+6)

Babies with cleft palate
- vocalize less
- Start babbling later
- Restricted and fewer consonants
- More glottal productions
- Delayed lexicon with words not effected by cleft earlier to develop
- Distorted feedback
- limited communication opportunities - limited feedback (env + self) - limits practice

3

In regards to developmental aspects in children with cleft, what do we need to know about language (birth to 3)?

(2)

- Development is shown to be delayed but often catches up with age
- Degree of impairment varies but can be associated with receptive, expressive, reading, or learning disorders

4

In regards to developmental aspects in children with cleft, what do we need to know about articulation (3 - 5 years)?

(5)

- Nasal distortions (oral consonants more nasal)
- Nasal air emission (NAE)
- Audible vs. inaudible
- Substitutions
- Omissions
- Compensatory Articulation patterns

5

What do SLPs assess and monitor in children with cleft?

(4)

- Monitor early milestones (babbling and phonemic repertoire)
- Work on language comprehension and build play skills (social skill development)
- Assess oromotor/speech mechanism
- Differentiate structural problems vs. speech problems

6

What do we need to know about educating family with children with cleft?

often have concerns with school adjustment

7

As SLPs, what does this mean for children with cleft?

(7)

- Eliminate stigma
- Research needed in areas to improve surgery to:

- Improve speech
- Therapy
- Make sure you know what you're doing!!
- No whistles, blow pops, balloons, etc. Just therapy!

- Number of factors that effect every area of development, including:
- Speech
- Hearing (OM)
- Facial differences
