Upedia is the only online psycho-social resource tool for Child Life Specialists and those working to support and enhance a child’s ability to better cope with their health care experiences. It is the only FREE comprehensive online resource for Child Life in North America.

With over 1,000 registered users around the world, and 2,527 Certificates of Attendance given to Child Life professionals for participating in our webinars, the need for the resources we provide is rising.

What you may not realize is that while Upedia’s resources and webinars are completely free to you, we receive no government funding to operate or grow. Upedia and our parent foundation (Kids’ Health Links Foundation) relies on the generosity of donors to ensure that we as professionals have the tools we need to help children cope.
