D.I.Y Radiation Room

on June 21, 2013

Often the hardest part about getting radiation treatments for many children is the separation from parents.  Using a “magic string” to connect the child and  his parent can offer a coping strategy and a way to connect the child and parent both figuratively and literally.   To create your own treatment room you will need shoe boxes, scissors, string, glue gun and I use the operating room set up from Playmobile but any small people and parts will do.

This idea can easily be adapted for any test or procedure where a child is separated from his parent. For example: X-ray
