Graham Schenck PhD, CCC-SLP
  • Craniofacial Speech Language Pathologist


Top Conditions

  • Cleft Lip and Palate
  • 22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome
  • Velopharyngeal Dysfunction
  • Resonance Disorders
  • Articulation Disorders
*This is not a complete list of conditions
  • I focus on interdisciplinary collaboration with all members of the cleft palate-craniofacial team to ensure that our patients receive the best possible care. During speech evaluations, I spend extra time educating families on the anatomical and physiological differences affecting speech, resonance, and feeding in people who have craniofacial differences, including cleft lip and palate.
