Differential diagnosis of etiology of velopharyngeal dysfunction (VPD) is paramount when   determining appropriate intervention (surgical, behavioral, or both).   Interpretation of speech characteristics can be challenging and requires a trained professional who understands the interaction of faulty articulation (i.e. velopharyngeal mislearning) on normal velopharyngeal closure. In this webinar, the impact of velopharyngeal mislearning on both perceptual and instrumental findings will be reviewed.  Audio-video recordings of cases will be presented to highlight obligatory versus compensatory errors and to discuss decision-making when etiology of VPD is multi-factorial.  This session is intended for surgeons, speech pathologists, and other craniofacial team members who are involved in the assessment and management of VPD.  Attendees will be able to describe how changes in faulty articulation can improve velopharyngeal function for speech production.
