Hello again SIG 5 Affiliates.
The lazy days of summer are well behind us. Fall is upon us and that means a new academic year is launched with new students, new caseloads, new and continuing research projects and, as always, new challenges and opportunities for new learning. In response to the call for submissions for this October issue of Perspectives on Speech Science and Orofacial Disorders, Editor Adriane Baylis and Associate Editor James Dembrowski invited four clinically focused articles that offer useful additions to your cleft palate & velopharyngeal dysfunction (VPD) Toolbox. Denny Ruscello and Linda Vallino reinforce our clinical skills for treating compensatory speech sound disorders in their article titled, “The Application of Motor Learning Concepts to the Treatment of Children with Compensatory Speech Sound Errors.” Lakshmi Kollara, Graham Schenk, and Jamie Perry team up to report on the use of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) in the treatment of acquired neurogenic VPD in their paper titled, “Continuous Positive Airway Pressure for the Treatment of Hypernasality: A Single Case Study.” A group of speech-language pathologists from Australia describe a novel “musical” approach to treating cleft palate speech errors in preschoolers who live in remote regions of the Australian Outback. In the fourth article, Tom Watterson and Lynn Grames provide a comprehensive review and develop a new case for an ASHA Knowledge and Skills Acquisition (KASA) document that addresses imaging and evaluation of the velopharyngeal mechanism. Collectively, these papers offer a stimulating and enjoyable means of earning continuing education units (CEUs). They also make excellent reading for graduate students.
