About the Information
We hope you find this information useful. Many parents of children with cleft lips and cleft palates say that they have many questions, concerns and fears about caring for their child. Sometimes, your child’s care will be the same as other children’s; at other times, it may be unique.
This information has been prepared by the Children’s Center for Craniofacial Disorders to answer your many questions. It can help you learn more about your child’s cleft lip and palate.
Please note, this information should not replace instruction given to you by your child’s healthcare team. It is not meant to be medical advice or a complete resource for all information on this subject. Your child’s doctor is the best resource of information about what is right for your child’s treatment. If you have any questions about this information, please contact the Children’s Center for Craniofacial Disorders and a nurse will help you.
Parent Support Group
Children's offers a Craniofacial Parent Support Group that meets several times a year. The support group provides an open forum to discuss challenges and concerns in helping your child with craniofacial differences.
