Our guest blogger, Dawn Klausmeier, is a Certified Child Life Specialist and owner of doseofplay.com. Dose of Play shares resources to support children facing illness, injury, and death of a loved one. Using skills and experience as a child life specialist and mother of two, the mission behind Dose of Play is to continue to serve families in our community beyond the hospital walls.
As kids deserve to be kids, more than their illness or injury, Dose of Play also focuses on providing play inspiration to nourish little minds, mindfulness activities and therapeutic outlets for bigger kids and teens. Tips and resources found on doseofplay.com can translate to fostering positive coping with non-medical stressors, too, such as separation anxiety from parents when starting school.
