Giggle Doctors from Theodora contribute to the wellbeing of children in 20 hospitals by providing visits from professional performers to make their treatment more bareable.
Giggle Doctors are professional performers, highly trained to work both in the medical environment and with children with disabilities. They come from a wide range of backgrounds and bring with them a variety of skills (among our team are actors, entertainers, magicians, musicians and singers). They are trained to communicate with children with special needs and have training in Intensive Interaction which is a practical approach to working with people with very severe learning difficulties, helping them to relate and communicate better with the people around them.
