Who We Are

Child Life specialists are professionals with training in child development and the impact of hospitalization and illness on children. Certification is awarded through the international professional organization, the Child Life Council after reaching a Bachelors or Masters level of education, and completing an extensive internship.

All of these professionals specialize in working with children and youth throughout their life’s journey and understand the unique challenges that can face the child and family in healthcare environments.
