Children and families can often experience fear and stress associated with medical care. Often times, the unknown is much scarier than the known. A Child Life Specialist aims to reduce stress, promote healthy coping experiences, and provide a sense of success.
The child life specialist often uses play with real and pretend medical equipment to help prepare children for upcoming events. A Child Life Specialist is a trained professional, working with the medical team to provide the best individualized care for children and families. To learn more about the training and services of a Child Life Specialist please visit: www.childlife.org.
Child Life Services are available throughout all areas of KAUST Health every Sunday through Thursday 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
