The Importance of Play – Digital Entertainment

At Connecticut Children’s we treat the physical, social and emotional needs of children. When patients and families visit one of our locations we work hard to normalize the experience and relieve anxiety, ensuring that the entire family has a positive visit. Being able to play at a medical center means your child can continue an aspect of their normal life. Play is familiar and reassuring. It’s how children make sense of the world around them. At our main campus, 282 Washington Street in Hartford, we have the United Technologies Family Resource Center that all families are welcome to use during their visit. This is a safe space that allows families to relax and play. Games can help reduce anxiety and are an important part of our distraction tool kit. Below is a list of digital game suggestions for downloading as a fun distraction during your visit.
