Child Life Program
Help your child feel confident speaking up and asking questions to become active participants in their health care. Click the new Joint Commission video, "Speak Up: Kid Power!" to see how.
For a child, going to a hospital or medical office can be scary. Painful treatments, new surroundings, separation from family and friends, and changes in routines can increase these fears. The Child Life Program focuses on reducing the stress of health care experiences and on helping families foster healthy coping strategies. Child life specialists use play, self-expression, and educational activities to support children and families during medical experiences.
