Making What’s Good, Better – What’s Better, Best

Looking to make your medical practice family-friendly?

Creating organizational policies to better serve kids and teens?

Need content crafted to encourage engaged learning?

What about getting help from a Child Life Specialist?

The expertise of a Child Life Specialist can prove invaluable to organizations who want to improve client satisfaction, decrease pain and distress of pediatric patients, or integrate developmentally informed practice into policies and procedures.

Whatever your specialty, if you’re working with children, we can empower you to provide more effective, compassionate care.

We’re here to help YOU help them – and their entire family.

Medical Practices and Hospitals

While most children’s hospitals include a Child Life program, many other hospitals don’t have access to a Child Life team. Child Life expertise can be useful in adult hospitals that treat pediatric patients and medical practices that serve the pediatric population.

Thriving Play can assist in creating policies and protocols that encourage patient compliance and satisfaction while also meeting rigorous medical standards.

Nonprofit organizations

Organizations providing services to children and their families don’t always offer just the right integration of detailed developmental knowledge with the nuances of psycho-social support.

Thriving Play can help train employees and volunteers to provide more effective services to families – according to need and development.
