Loredana Cuglietta is currently employed at Stollery Children’s Hospital. This hospital is a full-service children’s hospital for complex pediatric care and research. The hospital serves a geographical area of over 500,000 km. Over 40 per cent of the children treated at the Stollery are from outside the Edmonton area; the hospital services patients coming from northern British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Nunavut, Yukon and Northwest Territories.
Loredana Cuglietta works in the Cleft Lip and Palate Clinic where she provides care for infants to adolescents up to the age of 18 years old. She works in both pediatric feeding and swallowing, and speech and resonance. During infancy, care is focused on helping babies feed and swallow well in order to grow and thrive. As these infants mature, the focus in care shifts to communication and ensuring the velopharyngeal post is working well for speech production.
