At Children’s National, we understand that families have many questions about their child’s condition and care. Your care providers may offer specific resources, but we also have online resources available to answer your questions and connect you with the information you need.
Our Child Life Specialists are specially trained and certified to help children, adolescents, and families understand and cope with illness, treatment, and hospitalization.
Our social workers are specially trained and licensed professionals who provide an array of psychosocial services to enhance the quality of care our patients and families receive, both within Children's National and in the community. Learn more about social work services in the Heart Institute
Children’s National offers various support groups for families to exchange helpful information, provide solace to one another, and offer tips to help in caring for their children.
