This paper describes the outcome of the 2013 American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association Task Force entitled ''Speech Therapy Where There Are No Speech Therapists.'' The membership and goals of the initial task force are presented. Survey methods, communication of the members, and meeting discussion of the task force at the 12th International Congress for Craniofacial Anomalies in Orlando, Florida, in May 2013 are described.
