Links to useful Web sites about child life services.
Thanks to the child life services departments of children's hospitals, an overnight stay for a child is no longer a guaranteed tramatic experience. Child life staff members will offer age-appropriate toys and games, tutors, special care when needed, and act as a shepherd through the hospital's myriad ways. Just as the doctors and nurses in a hospital make the young patients physically well, the child life staff works to make them as mentally healthy as possible. The information in these links help them do that.
