Oxford Team Profiles: Clinical psychologists

Children born with a cleft lip and / or palate may face multiple health problems. Experience has shown that these problems are best supported by a team of specialists from many disciplines who work together with the family to provide for the social, emotional, psychological and educational needs of the child.
