March Is Child Life Month

Throughout the month of March (every Tuesday) I am going to be profiling different child life departments and techniques in honor of Child Life Month. A lot of people don't know what Child Life Specialists do, and I thought this was the perfect time to bring awareness.

This first video profiles Sherry Schlagle at Cooper University Hospital in New Jersey. The video talks about language use and the importance of giving choices. Did you know that the hospital can be fun? I did.

In July I posted a video profiling Courtney Hubbard at All Children's Hospital in Florida. That video focuses on procedural prep.

In November I posted a video about Bernard the hospital puppet from Le Bonheur Children's Medical Center in Memphis, TN focusing on pre-op teaching.
