 Adolescent Distractions

Distraction is a way to capture a child's attention and reduce distress during procedures through developmentally appropriate techniques. Distraction helps your child focus on something other than the pain and/or anxiety. Before a procedure, your child can help decide what technique to use. If time allows, practice the technique with your child.
