Format: Paperback
This book is just what I was looking for. I'm adopting a child with cleft palate but I haven't met him yet. I needed a good description of the condition along with some visual aids. This book provides that. It also provides a lot of information about the latest treatment methods, with plenty of before and after photos. The other books out there for parents of cleft-affected kids were published quite awhile ago and I wasn't sure they'd have the most updated treatment information. This one does. My only complaint is that it could be written a bit more clearly in parts. It gives some good technical information but is unnecessarily complicated at times.
