Child Life Program


Our Child Life Program helps patients and their families develop ways to cope with fear, anxiety and separation from home and school. Our staff works closely with family members during hospitalization. As the medical team is attending to the child's physical needs, our Child Life specialists are attending to the child's developmental, psychosocial, educational and emotional needs, which can be critical in the treatment and healing process.

Child Life Practicum

An interactive practicum program for students interested in pursuing Child Life as a career.
