Language therapy available in La Paz

Cleft often leads to problems with pronunciation due to the impairment of organs involved in the formation of sounds, particularly the lips, the maxilla and the alveolar process, and the palate. The problems can persist after the deformation is corrected since the cleft patient will have gotten used to using the organs in their impaired state and has to relearn using them after the repair has been performed.

For patients with these types of problems, Jiwaqui speech therapists Claudia Bautista Mamani, Shirley Yhasmin Bautista Huaycho, Mariana Adriana Montes Herrera and María Elena Calani Peñaranda offer regular speech therapy sessions in La Paz at the Jiwaqui office. A therapy session usually lasts 30-45 minutes.

To make an appointment please call Claudia Bautista under +591 77526449.
