Access from EThOS:
This study examined the cognitive development of children born with cleft lip and the impact of mother-child interactions on cognitive outcome. 2 index groups, differing in timing of initial lip repair (early neonatal repair, n=48; late 3-4 month repair, n=55) and one control group (n=100), were initially recruited. Comparisons of mother-child interactions at 2, 6 and 12 months and at 7-8 years, found the late group to differ from the controls on all 5 dimensions at 2 months, but not thereafter.
