The Cleft Palate Foundation Publications Committee is pleased to announce two newly revised publications for patient and family use: “Information About Surgical Scars and “To the Teacher of a Child with Cleft.” These, and many other booklets and factsheets, are available at no cost on the CPF website and are key to enhancing patient, family, and public education for every stage of cleft care.
