We’d like to honor to these incredible child life specialists
Services and interventions provided by child life have been shown to aid in reducing the length of hospital stays, the need for sedation, and in strengthening trust between patients, families and healthcare providers. They turn confusion and chaos into clarity, scary into okay, boring into fun, and frowns into smiles.
The theories and modalities behind child life are woven into the very fabric of The Standish Foundation. Six years ago, we were founded by certified child life specialist Andy Standish, and we are now proud that our multidisciplinary advisory council boasts a number of notable child lifers. (Now’s the time where we start a drum roll with our fingers and say “would the following amazing people please stand up!?”)
