We use sophisticated testing to come to a comprehensive diagnosis, including:
These parameters are then supported by direct visual assessments that may be done in the outpatient clinic, such as nasometry or nasoendoscopy for velopharyngeal function; or further referral to Pediatric Radiology for tests such as x-ray, CT, or MRI, and Televex (videoflouroscopic imaging of the velopharyngeal mechanism during speech production).
Results obtained will determine a differential diagnosis with an appropriate habilitation plan in both medical treatments and Results obtained will determine a differential diagnosis with an appropriate habilitation plan in both medical treatments and speech therapy.
