New Video Example of Nasal Speech Caused by VPI


New video exam of a child with hyper-nasal speech has been posted here. The cause of this child's hyper-nasal speech was due to a right lateral velopharyngeal insufficiency due to a slight right soft palate paresis. In this particular case, the child and parents also noticed that food and liquids kept coming out the nose whenever she swallowed. This deficit spontaneously resolved after about 1 month.
