Child Life Specialists

Child life specialists are a group of professionals dedicated to supporting children and families in health care settings and other challenging environments. In short, our child life specialists help decrease the fear children and teens have about their medical experiences to reduce the risk of traumatization.

Our interventions, whether preparing a child to cope with an invasive procedure or explaining a new diagnosis in words they can understand, are informed by the fields of child development and psychology. We use play to teach children about their medical treatment, assess their understanding, and to help them reach and maintain developmental milestones while in the hospital. We work closely with all members of the medical team, including doctors, nurses, occupational and physical therapy and social work.
