Speech therapy

Cleft often leads to speech problems due to the damage to organs involved in speaking, particularly the lips, the maxilla and the alveolar process (the upper jaw) , and the palate. The problems can continue after the cleft is closed because the cleft patient has become used to the defect and has to relearn speaking with the repaired organs after their surgery.

The experienced speech therapists of QORITO have been working with cleft patients for many years. They offer speech therapy sessions on a regular basis in the Casa QORITO in Lima (address: Calle Gozzoli Norte 343, San Borja Sur, Lima). The sessions usually last 30-45 minutes.

On missions they also offer individual speech therapy sessions as well as group workshops for patients and family members.
