Child Development Program:
Cleft Lip and Palate/Craniofacial Service

Professionals on the Cleft Lip and Palate/Craniofacial team assess and treat children and youth from across the province that have conditions that affect their teeth and facial structure including cleft lip, cleft palate. 

Services are provided by speech-language pathologists, a social worker and a neuropsychologist, who work in conjunction with dental and medical specialists, including audiologists, plastic surgeons, and ear-nose-throat specialists. 

In addition to outpatient care, annual clinics are held in northern Ontario locations.  The team at Bloorview Kids Rehab acts as a resource to community professionals and works closely with the cleft lip/palate and craniofacial programs at SickKids regarding clinical care and educational programs for clients and families.


To access this service, a pediatrician’s referral is required and the client must reside within the Toronto area or within an area that cannot access a local treatment centre within Ontario.
