Dr. Ann Kummer is Senior Director of the Division of Speech Pathology at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and Professor of Clinical Pediatrics and Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center. She shared with us a wealth of information about cleft palate and craniofacial anomalies and evaluating and treating resonance disorders and velopharyngeal dysfunction.
Dr. Ann Kummer was a wonderful speaker, in that she was able to convey a significant amount of detailed information in a way that was organized and easy to understand. Although I had a course on cleft palate in graduate school, and have had a few cleft palate students over the years, like most SLPs, it is one of the areas where I feel less prepared and knowledgeable. Â Dr. Kummer's thorough overview was greatly appreciated. She gave us valuable techniques for assessing velopharyngeal function, making recommendations regarding surgery, and treating speech when we can. An important message that she drilled into us, is that it is our job to determine whether there is velopharyngeal dysfunction, and whether surgery is needed before speech therapy can be done.
