Learning that your child has a disability or complex medical condition can create a wide variety of emotions—for your child, their siblings and you. If your child has a condition requiring lifelong care, a change in their health status can trigger new challenges that might seem overwhelming.
Regardless of where your child is in their medical journey, the Child and Family Services team at Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare is ready to help. Our team of experts can support your family with things like:
Call 651-229-3855 to connect with a specialist, ask questions and learn how Child and Family Services can help your family.
Child life specialists help your family prepare for and cope with hospital stays and medical procedures. For example, you can take a tour to learn what to expect during an upcoming visit. Your child can participate in a therapeutic play session to relax and become more comfortable with being in the hospital.
Neuropsychologists specialize in evaluating the emotional, thinking, learning and behavioral effects of complex conditions that affect the brain and nervous system. If your child has a neurologic condition or is receiving neurology treatment, we help you coordinate with other Gillette specialists for a comprehensive care plan.
