Child Life Specialists

Child Life Specialists

Sanford Children’s Child Life Specialists are here to help children and their families cope with the emotional, developmental and social changes brought about by illness, injury or hospitalization. Our dedicated specialists focus on easing children’s fears and helping them cope through age-specific play, preparation and therapeutic activities. We also are here to provide emotional and educational support to parents and siblings. Through a variety of programs, activities and support groups we make sure that every child is empowered and supported at our Children’s Hospitals.
