Children in hospitals are often overwhelmed by the complexity of their illnesses and by their experiences while undergoing treatment. These kids are thrown into a world where every conversation sounds scary and foreign, where they undergo intensive procedures that they aren’t prepared for, and where it is hard to really be a kid. Child Life specialists fill a role that doctors and nurses can’t fill. They play games with kids and explain treatments and diagnoses in ways that they can understand so that they can be prepared and confident in their next procedure.
