  • Description
  • Details

From diagnosis to treatment options, Comprehensive Cleft Care: A Family Edition provides families with important information to help them fully understand their child's condition and its treatment.

Authored by parents and professionals, this unique work was written with real-life challenges in mind. Two of the book's editors have raised cleft-affected children. As a result, the information provided is not only informative and helpful, but also personal, readily accessible, and relevant from a parent's perspective.

This book enables parents and families to play a central role in navigating their child's care while working alongside the rest of the care team. Written in easy-to-read language, it contains over two dozen short chapters that mirror topics discussed in the corresponding text written for health care professionals, Comprehensive Cleft Care, Second Edition. Topics covered include the fundamentals of care, psychosocial and educational aspects, cleft lip and palate repair, speech and hearing, airway and breathing issues, dental and orthodontic principles, and more.

By providing up-to-date information in a clear and concise format, this book can help to educate parents and to alleviate much of the anxiety they have regarding their child's condition and its treatment.
