Final Atypical patterns in the phonological systems of two-year-old children with clefts - ASHA poster

Objective: Two studies were conducted to analyze the early phonological development of toddlers with repaired cleft lip and/or palate.

  • Study 1 was a cross-sectional study of the correlation between consonant accuracy and word complexity, to determine if the children showed phonological delay or atypical development.
  • Study 2 was a longitudinal study of phonological changes 7 to 10 months later following a speech intervention consisting of Enhanced Milieu Teaching with Phonological Emphasis (Scherer & Kaiser, 2010).

The following poster was originally presented by Lauren Kleinert, M.S. and Shauna Baker, M.S., CCC-SLP, at the 72nd Annual Meeting of the American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association in April 2015.  At the Annual ASHA Convention, it will be presented by Lauren Kleinert.ACPA Poster 2015 FinalObjective: The purpose of this study was to compare speech and language skills of 5 toddlers adopted from China (Internationally Adopted) and 5 age and gender matched toddlers born in the United States (US born) over 3 time points to determine progress over time.
