Child Life Program

A child life specialist is a trained professional with expertise in helping children and their families overcome life’s most challenging events. And research shows the interaction a child life specialist brings a young patient can have a major impact on his or her well-being.

Community Regional’s Child Life Program in the Leon S. Peters Burn Center helps children and their families cope with the difficult experience of being burned. The child-life specialist works on social, emotional and developmental issues while the child is in the hospital, which is often done through teaching and playing.

“When they don’t have the words to express how they’re feeling … if you put a doll in front of them or any kind of toy, you can kind of assess how they’re coping through their play.”
-Community child-life specialist 

Burn injuries are one of the leading causes of hospitalization and death for children in the Central Valley. Most children treated at the Leon S. Peters Burn Center were scalded by hot liquids related to cooking.

Our caregivers treat each patient as they would their own families and are dedicated to educating the community about burn prevention.
