Understanding what's wrong with your child and how your child will be treated are important if you are to be a partner in your child's care.

To make sure any communication barriers are addressed, we offer American Sign Language (ASL) services as well as interpreters for many languages. We can best help you if we know ahead of time that it would help you to have a language intepreter during your child's appointment.

Our staff will be happy to make these arrangements for you. When you talk to the clinic or central scheduling (937-641-4000) about your child’s appointment, please let them know what language services you will need.

Dayton Children's offers many of its consent forms, legal documentes and education materials in Spanish. Translations into other languages is determined on a case-by-case basis.
