What is a Child Life Specialist?
  • Child Life Specialists aim to minimize and reduce
    the stress and anxiety experienced by a child and
    their family as a result of medical
    interventions, as well as maximize their ability
    to cope
  • Child Life Specialists are non-medical members of
    the healthcare team, trained at a Bachelors
    level.

What is a Child Life Specialist?
  • Most Child Life Specialists have additional
    graduate level training in addition to their
    Bachelors and all have completed a 480 hour
    supervised internship under a Certified Child
    Life Specialist.
  • In order to use the credentials CCLS or
    Certified Child Life Specialist, we must also
    pass a certifying exam offered through the Child
    Life Council.

Child Life as Best Practice
  • Child Life Specialists help hospitalized children
    by providing preparation prior to procedures,
    coping and distraction strategies, developmental
    play, support to families, advocacy, and
    opportunities for self expression.
  • Play, art and music are various outlets for
    patients to explore and express their feelings
    surrounding hospitalization and diagnosis.

5
Child Life as Best Practice
  • As non-medical professionals, CCLS bring a unique
    voice to the multidisciplinary team on
    Paediatrics. We are able to advocate for a child
    and familys needs, and provide valuable
    perspectives on how to assist a child in coping
    within the hospital environment.
  • The provision of child life services is a quality
    benchmark of an integrated child health delivery
    system and an indicator of excellence in
    paediatric care.

Child Life on Paediatrics at WRH
  • Child Life Specialists work in a variety of
    settings hospitals, outpatient clinics, dental
    offices, hospices, funeral homes, rehab centres,
    sexual assault clinics and private
    practiceanywhere a child may be medically
    involved.
  • WRH began a Child Life program in September 2005
    when Paediatrics moved over from Hotel Dieu Grace
    Hospital.

Child Life on Paediatrics at WRH
  • WRH employs two full time and one part time CCLS
    covering Inpatient and Outpatient Paediatrics. We
    can also be paged to assist in other areas in the
    hospital such as ER, DI, Lab, ICU, etc.
  • Child Life Specialists also orientate and
    supervise high school co-op students, volunteers,
    child life interns and music therapy students.

Music Therapy on Paediatrics
  • Paediatrics has enjoyed a long relationship with
    University of Windsors Music Therapy program. We
    typically receive music therapy students each
    semester. Over the years we have also been lucky
    enough to have several music therapy interns.

For 2011 we received a one year grant from
Transition to Betterness to pay for a Music
Therapist on staff, 12 hours a week.
