|When seriously ill children and their families need more than medicine, the Dr. Fairytale Program creates joy, emotional balance and hope.
Founded more than 15 years ago by physician
Dr. Tatjana Maya, the Dr. Fairytale Program brings
the educational and healing value of fairy tales and
storytelling to seriously ill children and their families, in
the hospital, in crisis areas and at home. When families
need support, Dr. Fairytale is there with award-winning
programs, available at no cost to those in need, in
New York, across the nation and internationally.
Our programs include:
Interactive Fairytale Performances:
Our actors perform for children, encouraging them
all the way through to express their feelings and
meet the fairytale characters live on stage.
Fairytale Pal Program:
To a child not being able to leave their bed due to
harsh treatments, this is a wonderful way to offer
companionship, laughter, friendship and creativity
through a carefully matched adult mentor.
ACT – Be the Star that You Are!
Acting fairytales can be a very healing experience.
Children can release suppressed emotions, express
their feelings and have a lot of fun! We have also
seen children unveil some amazing talent!
Family Support Enrichment Program:
Our professional staff helps to balance emotions of
parents and siblings and offers storytelling practice
so that the family can engage in the creative process
with their child.
Medical Staff Training:
Dr. Fairytale teaches medical staff body language to
better understand the child’s needs, which it might
not be able to express verbally. Also storytelling, the
ability to use symbols and images in communication,
are part of the training.
We urge you to join us in supporting thousands of
seriously ill children who need your help now.
Thank you very much!|
