Abstract:
SISL (ScreeningsInstrument Schisis Leuven): assessment of cleft palate speech, resonance and myofunction. This paper presents an assessment protocol for the evaluation and description of speech, resonance and myofunctional characteristics commonly associated with cleft palate and/or velopharyngeal dysfunction. The protocol is partly based 1,2 on the GOS.SP.ASS’98 and adapted to Flemish. It focuses on the relevant aspects of cleft type speech necessary to facilitate assessment, adequate diagnosis and management planning in a multi-disciplinary setting of cleft team care.
