The Laughter League team is comprised of veteran variety artists with a wealth of performance backgrounds, including circus arts, theater, improvisation, magic, and music. All performers are trained in hospital protocol, including hygiene, confidentiality, sensitivity, and child development.

Tutoring

Teachers tutor in all four core content areas and have a passion for working in the hospital environment. All students are seen in accordance with their home state's regulations for home and hospital instruction.

Pawprints

Pawprints provides patients and their families with a healthy diversion from the usual hospital routine and an opportunity for social interaction.

Music Therapy Services

Music therapists are members of the treatment team on inpatient units, providing treatment and education through music-based interventions to support a patient during their hospital admission. Therapists work to improve each patient’s hospital stay and achieve optimal recovery while supporting the patient's psychosocial needs.

This is a collaboration between Child Life Services and the hospital’s Art Program. We provide engaging, innovative, and uplifting arts experiences that support our many patients and families throughout their hospital experience.
