Join us for our Transforming Lives Webinar Series: Early Speech and Language Development in Children with Cleft Lip/Palate
Approximately half of all children born with a cleft palate will need some form of speech and language therapy. This webinar will explore how a cleft palate can affect early speech and language development, and strategies you can use at home to help your child progress. You will also have the opportunity to ask live questions during the question-and-answer portion of the program.
