For Students

Students interested in learning more about the Craniofacial Cleft Palate Laboratory and its projects are encouraged to review some of the documents provided here that introduce the early intervention approach that we practice, which is a combination of Enhanced Milieu Teaching methods and phonological emphasis.  Our laboratory focuses on assessment of children with craniofacial conditions, along with training parents and other caregivers in using these intervention methods with their children, with the goal of promoting speech and language development.

Students working in our laboratory may participate in conducting speech/language evaluations, developing and testing parent training materials, and assessing child performance and therapy effectiveness over time.
