CLP Resource Pack for Speech and Language Therapists

The “Cleft Lip and Palate and Palatal Anomalies SIG” are a Special Interest Group that have recently produced a resource pack for Speech and Language Therapists working with children with Cleft Lip and Palate in different clinical settings.

This resource contains very specific information ranging from the care pathway to therapy that can be conducted with children from earliest stage of babble stimulation right through to specific techniques to articulation therapy as well as instrumental assessment techniques that are available.

It was launched at the IASLT (Irish Association of Speech and Language Therapists) conference on 22 and 23 October.  The final resource which is available on CD and is part funded by CLAPAI.  The resource is be available on request to Speech Language Therapists.

Parents can advise their local Speech Language Therapists that the pack is available and can be requested by emailing or by contacting one of the below directly.  Please note that this is only available to professional SLTs. It is not designed for any other use.

The Association would like to thank the dedicated members of the SIG that have taken this initiative.  It will no doubt assist local professionals and in turn the families that they are working with.

Well done all!  Thank you also to our fund raisers who make it possible for us to contribute to this type of innovation.
