Parents can help make their kid's hospital stay better by offering the right kind of support.  The role of Child Life Specialists help young patients develop ways to cope with the anxiety, fear and separation that often accompany the hospital experience. They give special consideration to each child’s family, culture and stage of development.   

As professionals trained to work with children in medical settings, specialists hold a bachelor’s or master’s degree in the areas of child life, child development and special education or recreational therapy.   

Child life supports children and families by:  

  • Helping children cope with anxiety, fear, separation and adjustment 
  • Making doctors, needles and tests a little less scary 
  • Providing art and music play 
  • Organizing activities Listening and Addressing your concerns 
  • Telling you what to expect and no surprises 
  • Creating a therapeutic and medical plan, alongside with the multidiscipline teams 
  • Offering a hand to hold

You will learn:

  • Practical skills to help and prepared your child when they need to go through any medical procedure 



To attend any of our virtual workshops, you will need the most updated version of ZOOM and a desktop (mobile will not work). 


About Your Instructor:

Originally from Hong Kong, moved to South Australia Adelaide for Higher education.  Done both my undergrad and postgrad in South Australia, move back and forth a lot between Hong Kong and Australia. After I graduated,I worked as a registered social worker mainly working with kids at IB school.  I really enjoyed my time working with high school kids.  Then I moved to Perth after I got married. Unfortunately I lost my son in Perth, then He inspired me to be a better person, which I was then determined to work in a hospital setting as I was inspired by the medical staff when the time I lost my son.  After that, I came back to Hong Kong and become a child life specialist, working in a hospital, walking together with the parents and kids during their devastating time. Given that my son Angel Tsang it’s a stillborn child, I also dedicate my life to raise awareness of Stillbirth.
