Modules in Cleft Palate Speech (Masters Level)

Study Mode: Part-time by Distance Learning.

Why study our modules in Cleft Palate Speech?

The modules in Cleft Palate Speech are the only modules of their kind in the UK.

They provide in-depth coverage of the impact of a cleft lip and/or palate on an individual across the lifespan. They pay particular attention to the impairments of speech, language and communication associated with
a cleft and to theoretical and practical approaches to their assessment and management.

As such the modules are suitable not only for speech and language therapists who specialise (or wish to
develop a specialism in) the area of cleft lip and palate, but also for graduates of other disciplines
(including linguistics, psychology, education, and the biomedical sciences) who have a particular interest in the area.

The modules are inherently multi-disciplinary, taught by experts in the fields of speech and language pathology, phonetics and linguistics, psychology, education, medicine, dentistry and professions allied to medicine.
