We were told by our cleft team of doctors that we should start speech therapy as soon as their palate is repaired. Even though they are young (they just turned 2) it is better to start as soon as possible with cleft babies so with their first surgery over a month ago, I started the process. We met with the speech therapist yesterday along with another lady who is going to make sure there are no other developmental delays. They are going to do some more paperwork with me next week and then I think we will be having a weekly meeting with the speech therapist until they are in school. One more step in the long process of recovery for these girls.
