In the 2004 clinical forum on childhood voice disorders, the tutorial “Velopharyngeal Dysfunction: Speech Characteristics, Variable Etiologies, Evaluation Techniques, and Differential Treatments” (Dworkin, Marunick, & Krouse, 2004) described the perceptual speech characteristics and etiologies of, and diagnostic procedures and speech treatment for, persons with velopharyngeal dysfunction (VPD). We applaud Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools (LSHSS) for inviting clinical tutorials of this kind and for identifying VPD as an important topic for the speech-language pathologist (SLP) working in the schools. Indeed, as the SLPs immersed in cleft palate/craniofacial settings—members of American Speech-Language-Hearing Association Division 5 (ASHA DIV5, Speech Science and Orofacial Disorders) and the American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association (ACPA)—we support continuing education for school SLPs about VPD and the diagnostic, evaluative, and treatment approaches to best help children with it.
