Speech Pathology - Cineradiographic Examination of the Velopharyngeal Mechanism

Demonstrates, via cineradiography, the velopharyngeal competency rating system, showing a range from normal closure to gross incompetence.

Speech Pathology - Examination of the Oral Mechanism

Examines the relationship between the oral speech mechanism and speech problems. Demonstrates how an oral mechanism examination many be effectively administered when the objective is to locate physical problems which may affect speech.

Various deviations in respiratory, laryngeal and articulatory functioning are demonstrated by persons with cerebral palsy. Emphasis is on the difficulty of fully describing the speech physiology problems and relating specific deviations in functioning of the speech mechanism to the speech defects exhibited. Physiological functioning m ay vary in cerebral palsied children and a number of deviations may contribute to a particular speech characteristic.
