Children with developmental disorders, traumatic brain injury or deformities of the oral structures and throat may have difficulties learning to communicate or problems with swallowing and eating.

Our speech-language pathologists are part of the UVA Craniofacial Clinic team, a group that involves doctors from specialties like dentistry, head and neck surgery, eye and neurosurgery.

We evaluate and treat children with a wide range of communication and feeding disorders, including:

  • Aphasia
  • Apraxia
  • Articulation delays and disorders
  • Cleft palate and cleft lip
  • Dysarthria
  • Hearing loss
  • Speech delays or disorders
  • Stuttering and other speech fluency disorders
  • Tongue thrust
  • Swallowing and feeding disorders
  • Voice disorders
  • Written language disorders

We offer several advanced diagnostic tests to determine if patients have the muscle control and oral motor skills necessary to swallow.
