Child life specialists are often the go-to person to help explain everything from medical procedures to diagnosis. Although some of these teachings are routine, many can still prove challenging. Accessible resources are a must, and making them affordable is something Health Press NA Inc. understands.
You know that when you print the only children’s book on Crohn’s Disease and have a sizable electronic book database in addition to a print library, you’re doing something right. Using the iPad for interventions? Health Press teaching books can now be downloaded through iPads, iPhones, e-readers, and Amazon’s Kindle!
“We choose to publish bibliotherapy health books for kids, addressing issues that may not be covered well in other kinds of resources. We have established a unique series of children’s bibliotherapy books based on disease or condition-specific stories. More than just story books, each book provides real educational information with resources, glossaries, and easy to understand kid-friendly words. These books are designed to open doors to knowledge of health related topics not only for the children personally dealing with a health issue, but also for their peers, friends, family members, and others.”
Health Press likes to stay socially savvy and invites you to keep up with their happenings on their blog, Twitter, LinkedIn, or Facebook page. Health Press Sponsored Post
