MARINO, Viviane Cristina de Castro; DUTKA, Jeniffer de Cássia Rillo; PEGORARO-KROOK, Maria Inês  and  LIMA-GREGIO, Aveliny Mantovan. Compensatory articulation associated to cleft palate or velopharyngeal dysfunction: literature review. Rev. CEFAC [online]. 2012, vol.14, n.3, pp.528-543.  Epub July 29, 2011. ISSN 1982-0216.

BACKGROUND: compensatory articulation in cleft lip and palate. PURPOSE: to contribute with information regarding the types of compensatory articulation described in the literature and discuss the implications and contributions of clinical and instrumental evaluation of these speech productions. CONCLUSION: compensatory articulation deserves attention from Brazilian physicians and researchers, since that these productions occur in children and adults with cleft palate and velopharyngeal dysfunction, compromising their speech intelligibility and consequently quality of their lives. Speech-language pathologists need to improve knowledge regarding different types of compensatory articulation and also on the procedures for evaluating these productions, in order to settle preventive programs that favor phonological acquisition in children with cleft palate without developing compensatory articulation.
