The Child Life On Call App
Every family deserves access to a child life specialist.
But you’re only one person, and you’re not on call 24/7.
And when you are at work? You’re running yourself ragged, juggling patient care, administrative tasks, meetings, and more.
All in limited time, with limited resources, and a limited budget.
If only there was a way to support all the children and families who walk through your facility’s doors.
Finally the help you need is here—and it fits in the palm of your hand.

- How you feel pulled in a million directions, all of them away from your patients
- How you lack time and resources to do your work well
- How guilt creeps in when you think of all the patients you aren’t able to see or help
I know, because I’ve been there.
In my 12 years as a child life specialist I found myself wishing for something, anything, to help alleviate these tensions.
And when I couldn’t find it, I decided to create it.
It is possible to support more families with a high level of care, within the confines of your shift, without sacrificing your own well-being.
Let me show you how, with the Child Life On Call app.
What They’re Saying
Sam Krawiec, CCLS
Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital
Making it easier to do your job well.
The Child Life On Call App is:
Our robust library of evidence-based, trauma-informed resources boasts over 50 procedures, an extensive glossary, and 100+ handouts on a variety of health and child-related topics.
Every facility is unique, so your experience with our app should be too. With Child Life On Call, you can add your own site-specific materials, plus pictures of your facility and staff, all with a few taps of your screen.
Child Life On Call puts everything you need in the palm of your hand. Instead of rushing off to make extra copies, or darting out to grab your folder of printables, you can share resources with patients and families directly through the app, without leaving their side.
We don’t store health information, so you won’t have to worry about HIPAA violations. Plus the app gives everyone in your facility a shared language, which helps them better meet the Joint Commission’s requirements for providing mandated developmental considerations of care.
All content is created and verified by a group of child life specialists, and our work is overseen by a highly credentialed board of advisors.
