The objective was to estimate resonance in individuals with repaired cleft-palate by using Temple-Street-Scale by cross-sectional sampling study. Data was collected from Clapp General Hospital, Lahore. This study was conducted by modifying Temple-Street-Scale after consent focusing on nasality, nasal emission. Total of 60 individuals with repaired cleft-palate, age ranging from 8-15 years with evidence of resonance disorders was recruited in the study. Results showed that the percentage of ages of an individual with repaired cleft palate was the high rate at 12 years (22%) which was high in males. The percentage of hyper-nasality (90%) at mild-moderate (26.7) level was higher than other resonance problems with consistency of 67%. The frequency of nasal emission was 83% with the consistency of 63%. The frequency was notable among individuals with repaired cleft-palate, having different levels, consistency, and frequency. So it was concluded that individuals with cleft-palate must follow proper speech-therapy sessions after repairing cleft for their better prognosis.
