Tips for students

It’s important to show potential employers that while you may still be learning to walk the walk, you can certainly talk the talk! Child life comes with a special set of vocabulary words that every CCLS uses in their day to day work. This not only will make you sound more professional overall, but it will show your interviewer you’re dedicated to the field of child life. Read over the ACLP website and jot down some child life vocabulary words that you can use in your next interview. Here are a couple to get you started:

  • Coping skills
  • Assessment
  • Psychosocial support
  • Psychosocial stressors
  • Psychosocial needs
  • Developmentally appropriate
  • Age appropriate
  • Address fears
  • Interventions
  • Normalization
  • Compliance
  • Build rapport
  • Sensory stimulation
  • Impact of hospitalization
  • Recreational activities
