When a child is hospitalized due to illness or injury, normal activities and relationships are disrupted, often resulting in increased fear and stress. Child life staff provide opportunities to prepare children and family members for the medical experiences and teach techniques to help reduce stress and anxiety. Child Life Staff also support a child's development by promoting normalization activities.
Our Child life staff are also trained to provide emotional support, medical play opportunities and give information to siblings regarding the hospital experience.
Child Life Specialists and Child Activity Coordinators work together as a team to support our patients and their families.
