Autism Spectrum Center Program | My Hospital Story

Are you planning to bring your child to Boston Children’s Hospital and concerned that the visit might be stressful for her? My Hospital Story is a series of visual vignettes—child-friendly stories to help children anticipate every step of their visit, starting with entering our sometimes busy lobby.

The stories include simple, reassuring descriptions and photos of different places your child may visit in the hospital, showing what the rooms look like, whom they might meet and what will happen.

My Hospital Story is currently available as a set of downloadable PDFs. The stories will also soon be available as a mobile app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch—and eventually for Android devices—so you can customize and carry them with you.
