The “Kids Health” Website for Kids from Nemours – Therapist Resource of the Week

Have you seen the Kids Health website? Nemours is one of the largest nonprofit organizations devoted to children’s health. This site is designed for kids with no “doctor speak” on a wide array of children’s health issues. There are some great pages in here on many of the developmental issues that your kiddos are dealing with.

We especially recommend sections on the left toolbar under “Health Problems,” and “Illnesses & Injuries,” but there are lots of other terrific places on the site for kids to explore. Check out the “About Us” page to learn more about the site and the Foundation that created it.
