Cleft Palate Team Evaluations

The Iowa Cleft Palate Team has developed a partnership with Northwest Iowa Ear Nose and Throat Clinic in Spencer, Iowa, an area with limited resources in this medical specialty. The UI team travels to Spencer twice each year to evaluate children from the area and the surrounding states. They assess 20-30 children during each of these one-day clinics to identify speech, language, hearing, and dental concerns related to cleft palate or craniofacial anomalies.
