Child Life Therapy

The child life specialist at the Children’s Hospital at Piedmont Columbus Regional Midtown Campus provides unique care to help ease the concerns of children and parents and make hospitalization a more positive and less stressful experience.

A child life specialist is a specially trained, certified professional who is knowledgeable in child development and therapeutic interventions. They promote effective coping through play, self-expression activities and age-appropriate medical preparation and education. As an advocate of family-centered care, child life specialists work in partnership with doctors, nurses, case management and other multidisciplinary members of the health care system to meet the unique emotional, developmental and cultural needs of each child and family.
