Abstract This study examines the relationships between self-perception, social skills, overall adjustment, and social inhibition in 45 young adolescents with craniofacial anomalies (CFA). Self-perception, social skills, and inhibition scores are within the normal range while the average adjustment is 1.5 SD below the average. Regression analyses were conducted. Social skills and athletic competence are the best predictors of adjustment and accounted for 73.5\% of the variance in adjustment. Adjustment of adolescents is associated with degree of inhibition, with more poorly adjusted adolescents displaying greater inhibition. Self-esteem did not predict to adjustment. The theoretical and clinical implications of these findings are discussed. This article was published in Cleft Palate Craniofac J and referenced in Journal of Pain & Relief
