What patients and families need to know
Resources for Families
At Children’s National, we understand that families have many questions about their child’s condition and care. In addition to any resources your provider may give you, our online resources can also support your ongoing treatment journey.
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.
Child Life Specialists at Children's National are trained and certified to help children, adolescents and families with psychological and emotional support during outpatient and inpatient visits.
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.
