Our Amazon wish list supports our Child Life Specialists and Expressive Therapists.

Our Child Life Specialists are experts in helping patients cope with stressors related to healthcare encounters. By distracting and helping children to relax via play and other developmentally-appropriate methods, Child Life Specialists aid in shifting children’s focus from unpleasant medical experiences.

Our Expressive Therapists support the cognitive, emotional, social, mental health and physical well-being of patients and families. Our team consists of Art Therapy, Dance/Movement Therapy, Massage Therapy, Music Therapy and Recreational Therapy.

Children’s Wisconsin keeps an Amazon wish list of items our Child Life and Expressive Therapies team deems appropriate in using with patients for distraction or therapeutic purposes. Purchased items will be shipped directly to Children's Wisconsin.
