The person on the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Craniofacial team who works with your child’s speech and language is the speech/language pathologist (SLP). Your SLP will conduct regular checkups as your child grows to see how his speech is developing.
Based on these checkups, the SLP may advise treatment. Your child’s treatment may include speech therapy and surgery. Your child can be ready to speak at a normal level for his age by the first year in school.
