This paper will describe the multiple pathways that new or established clinicians may take as they embark on the process of obtaining clinical expertise in cleft/craniofacial anomalies and velopharyngeal dysfunction. Examples of clinical competencies for speech-language evaluation, treatment, and feeding management for working with craniofacial population will be discussed. Various training opportunities including observation and fellowship experiences, mentored clinical practice, instrumentation/imaging courses, and other learning experiences will be described. Last, strategies for selecting quality resources including textbooks, journal articles, webinars, and CEU courses to facilitate evidence-based practice in this clinical area will be discussed.
