Many children with a cleft lip and/or palate have no problems or concerns psychologically, but parents often worry about:


  • How their child will develop
  • Difficulties they may face in the future


Parents may want information about how to support their child through the treatment. Occasionally, children with a cleft can have some additional learning needs and therefore psychology team is available to discuss any concerns.

How do we support you?

  • Coming to terms with a diagnosis.
  • Dealing with the attitudes of other people, including teasing or bullying.
  • How to talk to your child about their cleft and what to say to brothers, sisters,, family and friends.
  • Development assessment.
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Family or relationship tensions
  • Appearance concerns.
