Preparation & Education
Children manage difficult diagnoses and procedures better when they are well prepared on their developmental level. Finding creative ways to help them understand is a challenge that Child Life Specialists face daily. By using Google Glass / Happy Glass we are able to capture a child's attention, prepare and educate them with the materials we have created for procedures and diagnoses.
Fear and Pain are experiences children should never have to face, but in the hospital we know that sometimes they are a reality. As Child Life Specialists it is our job to help hospitalized children cope with both. A Google Glass / Happy Glass program opens up a world of distraction for our patients to view as they undergo difficult procedures.
We see families from all over the world. We provide resources and education for their hospital experiences. Google Glass/Happy Glass is our most valuable tool. It allows us to share our resources with families in their language. Can you imagine how frightening it would be to find yourself in another country, your child is facing a life threatening illness and you do not fully understand what the doctors are telling you or where to go for help? Happy Glass would give clarity to families at their most vulnerable time. Happy Glass together with Child Life Specialists will reduce the effects of long term hospitalization for children.
