Child Life Services

The Child Life Specialist focuses on your child's developmental growth and helps your child maintain a sense of normalcy during what can be a very abnormal period. The Child Life Specialist can educate you in ways to connect to and interact with your infant even while he or she is undergoing intense medical treatment. They also are available to prepare siblings for the arrival of a sibling with complex medical needs.
