Speech characteristics of children with velocardiofacial syndrome

We are investigating the speech characteristics of children with velocardiofacial syndrome (VCFS).

What's involved?

Your child will undergo a comprehensive speech assessment (up to 1.5 hours). The assessment will be conducted at the Communication Disorders Treatment and Research Clinic (CDTRC) at Lidcombe. There will be no charge for the assessment and you will be reimbursed for travelling expenses.

You may be eligible to participate in this study if you:

  • if your child is aged between four and 12 years old, and has VCFS without cleft lip or palate, you are welcome to participate in our study.
