Abstract

Fifty-eight pairs of parents of cleft lip/palate children, and fifty-eight classroom teachers of the children rated the child's behavior along four dimensions: conduct, personality, inadequacy-immaturity, and socialized delinquency. Results indicated that mothers and fathers rated conduct problems, personality problems, and socialized delinquency problems to change as a function of the child's age. There were no significant differences between mothers' and fathers' ratings of behavior: however, teacher ratings differed significantly from the parents. Implications for these findings are discussed.
