Development of Stop Consonants
Co-Investigator: Amelia Drake, MD
NIDCR Grant Number: 1R01DE022566-01A1
The emergence and development of stop consonants and velopharyngeal function will be followed in three cohorts of children: a) children with repaired cleft of the secondary palate, b) children with otitis media with effusion, and c) typically developing children.

CFM: Longitudinal Outcomes in Children pre-Kindergarten (CLOCK)
Subcontract PI, Co-Investigator: Amelia Drake, MD
R01 DE022438 (NIH/NIDCR)
The goals of this grant are to perform a longitudinal cohort study of 100 infants with craniofacial microsomia (CFM) and controls. We will perform a series of evaluations in participants ages 0-3 years to assess neurodevelopmental and social communication outcomes. We will also investigate the relationship between facial asymmetry and neurodevelopmental outcomes, as well as hearing loss and neurodevelopmental and social communication outcomes.  The benefits of this work will be to identify subpopulations of children with CFM who are at risk for poor outcomes and plan future studies investigating the effects of early interventions in these groups.
