” I believe children will tell us what they need to know
we just have to be listening.”
My philosophy of offering hands on interactive play and expressive activities encourage both normal development and a sense of fun in spite of challenging events.
By creating a safe space for children to explore materials leads to increased coping and builds on strengths for learning and understanding life’s challenges.
are child development experts who use play and preparation as tools to support children with medical encounters. They promote effective coping through play, expressive activities and age appropriate
preparation and education.
Research has shown that….
- Children who are prepared for medical procedures
experience less fear and anxiety and will have
better long term adjustment to medical challenges
- Child life interventions can increase cooperation
and help to reduce procedural and post procedural pain.
- Children who engage in therapeutic play with a trained
professional exhibit less emotional distress, increased
cooperation and fewer negative phsyiological responses.
