Hello Child lifers!
I decided that I will post monthly finds of helpful apps. With how rapid technology is growing of course it’s only appropriate that apps are being generated to help children with hospitalization, self-expression, coping, etc.
Some of you may have heard of this app, but I just discovered it this week and I’M OBSESSED! It was developed by the child life department at Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
App: Simply Sayin’
Download it HERE.
It provides kids with simplified definitions of medical vocabulary, along with pictures AND preparations.
Not only does it help children, it helps child life students, child life specialists, and other healthcare professionals. It provides them with age appropriate language to help patients understand what is happening.
Below are some screen shots of the app menu and how it explains CT scan.
Till next time!
