Social interaction techniques important for cleft palate children

Children with cleft lip and palate defects must learn how to handle classmates’ and friends’ questions about their condition. A good way to do this is by leading through example; prepare age-appropriate responses to those who ask you questions about the condition, so your child can learn from you. Other tips include:

• Document your child’s personal history through pictures, allowing them to see their condition as normal.
• Consider support groups, where parents can share their experiences and methods that have worked for them.
• When children are bullied or teased by their peers due to their defects, parents should teach their children how to respond accordingly based on the situation. This could include educating them, ignoring the situation, or responding easily with a joke.

Growing up with cleft defects can be difficult for children as well as for their parents. If you believe that your loved one’s cleft defect is caused by the use of Depakote during a mother’s pregnancy, Williams Hart may work for you to lessen your financial burden.
