Introduction: Meningomyelocele is a birth defect caused by incomplete closing of neural tube. It is the heaviest and the most complicated defect from the spinal bifida defects. After giving birth to the child, some other disordes are also diagnosed, for example defects in the brain like the Arnold and Chiarie syndrome, other nervous system defects, lower limbs defects, urinary system defects, heart and blood vessels defect, digestive system defects.

Aim: The aim of the work was to undergo a neurospeech-therapy, prepared individually for the child diagnosed with Meningomyelocele and answer the question if properly prepared therapy can improve child’s speech and perception ability.

Material and methods: In present work, the case of an individual patient is described. The diagnosis was obtained based on the interview, observation, approximate examining the speech and the neurospeech-therapy examination.

Results: The speech therapy caused desired effects. A motor and manual efficiency and visual-motor coordination were improved. An auditory and visual memory and perception were streamlined. Time of the concentration of the attention was extended. Considerably a store of the vocabulary was enriched. Ability of the play and desire for the imitation were developed.
