  • My Cleft Story – #3

    My final instalment deals with something that was really quite difficult although it all worked out well in the end. When I was 9 I went back to GOSH for an alveolar bone graft, the first operation I really can remember.

  • Transition Stages – Research

    My name is Katharine and I am a PhD student at Kingston Uni. I am currently running a research study about resilience for children who look different because of a cleft lip or palate, and who are beginning secondary school in September 2017. My interest in research developed because of my work with children in education. I hope that this research will enhance our understanding of some of the challenges a child faces, especially starting secondary school. and promote self-worth.
