Texas Children’s Hospital Child Life Department provides developmental, educational and therapeutic interventions for children undergoing medical treatment. Child life services help children effectively manage stress, which reduces the need for potentially dangerous sedatives and pain medications and helps children heal faster with less long-term psychological effects. Toys are used for procedural distraction and for play that both normalizes the hospital experience and supports each patient’s developmental needs.
