AbstractThis study investigates the concerns, attitudes and stress of Hong Kong parents of children with cleft lip and/or palate (CLP). Twenty-three parents participated and were asked to fill in two questionnaires. The results showed that parents generally had similar concerns to other parents in Hong Kong, including health, social development and performance in school. They tended to possess positive attitudes towards CLP. However, they would not want their children to have CLP if they could choose. More than half of the parents were experiencing high parenting stress. The results gave insight regarding the need for expanded speech therapy services in public hospitals and inclusion of counseling services in the multidisciplinary craniofacial team.
