Cleft Info & Resources

In this section of the website, you will find many of the resources and pieces that I have written concerning cleft lip and palate.

In the online seminars section, you will find hour long videos on cleft lip and palate, a bit about my journey, and also how to deal with bullying and depression.

In the downloadable resources section, you will find slides and podcasts from some of my presentations that I have given over the years, as well as some supplementary information I have put together on how to deal with bullying.

You also can see all posts I have written about cleft lip and palate – there’s a lot of them. Here are a few of my personal favourite blog posts:
