Robyn Snyder, CCLS
Robyn is a certified child life specialist working in the cleft and craniofacial clinic at Boston Children’s Hospital. Child life specialists are trained professionals who focus on the psychosocial needs of children, and promote effective coping with medical experiences through play, preparation, support, and education. Robyn was first a special education teacher and then a behavior specialist prior to discovering and entering the field of child life. Robyn has worked at Boston Children’s Hospital for over eight years, after completing her child life internship and then working as a child life specialist at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. She’s very excited to join the cleft and craniofacial team during the Friday clinics, and is enjoying getting to know and supporting the patients and families during their visits. Robyn is mom to two young children, a four-year-old daughter and a four- month-old son. In her spare time (ha!), Robyn enjoys traveling, reading, taking walks, and spending time with her friends and family.
