Aims/Description: This unit examines issues in speech development and speech processing in individuals with a cleft lip and/or palate. It explores the ways in which the development of speech in the presence of a cleft may differ from typical speech development, and it assesses the contributions of phonetic, phonological and psycholinguistic theory to our understanding of speech processing in individuals with a cleft.
