Speech Therapy

ReSurge International is increasingly working to provide an integrated continuum of care for cleft patients through its Surgical Outreach Programs around the world. Many children who have cleft palate repairs are evaluated by a multi-disciplinary panel that, at the very least, includes professionals in the fields of speech, orthodontics and pediatric dentistry.

As part of Nepal’s successful program, ReSurge’s surgical outreach directors, Drs. Nakarmi and Rai, and their team of interdisciplinary caregivers travel great lengths to remote villages in this mountainous country plagued by poverty. They hold week-long “speech camps” around the country, where they are able to deliver follow-up care consisting of speech therapy, dental hygiene, counseling and much more to dozens of children and their families at a time. Therapists work with children individually and in groups. Thousands of children have benefited from the program—and many have already “graduated” with successfully integrated speech patterns.
