Cleft Coffe Talk

Join us for coffee, snacks and a chance to ask questions, share ideas, and meet other parents. Speech coffee talks provide an informal opportunity to learn more about how cleft lip/palate can affect a child’s speech and language development and resources in the community to address your child’s needs. The discussions will focus on what to look for in your child’s therapy programs and how to access additional resources if needed, rather than specific therapy ideas. Unfortunately, we cannot provide child care at this event.

DATE: Saturday, October 14

TIME: 10:00-11:30 a.m.

RSVP: RSVP to or 720-295-3731 with the number of adults and which location you plan to attend.

Colorado families, resources are available if you are struggling to pay for the healthcare associated with your child's cleft. Check out these ideas for support below:

1) Contact your cleft clinic. Many clinics and their hospitals have staff who can help you navigate health coverage and uncovered costs.

2) Learn about the UnitedHealthcare Children's Foundation. The Child Medical Grant can provide qualifying families with up to $5,000 per grant to help pay for their child's health care costs not fully covered by insurance. Families do not need to have insurance through UnitedHealthcare to be eligible.

3) Know the laws. The state has a mandate to require Colorado issued private insurance plans to provide coverage for cleft-related medical expenses.
