Intérêt d'une complémentarité des prises en charge précoces orthophonique et dentaire chez le jeune enfant porteur de trisomie 21

Abstract : The orofacial syndrome of babies with Down Syndrome has many morphological and functional repercussions. Early speech therapy and dental care aim to prevent these conditions from worsening. The goal of this project is to study the benefits of associating palatal plates with early speech therapy. In order to do this, we observed 8 children who received both treatments and 12 children who received speech therapy only. We compared breathing, feeding, articulation functions and the morphological and aesthetic aspects. The results reveal an improvement in tongue position with a decrease in protrusion in the experimental group. They also suggest an improvement in chewing. This preliminary study, which can be scaled up, already demonstrates the value of directing the children receiving speech therapy to be given dental care by palatal plates. Despite the small scope, this study highlights the importance of early intervention in the prevention of orofacial complications.
