United States Child Life Groups

In addition to participating in networking experiences offered directly through ACLP, we encourage you to reach out to child life groups in your region. These groups may offer you further opportunities to connect with peers in designated geographic areas.

Please note, each organization has its own mission, goals and standards for participation, and does not have any direct affiliation with ACLP. For more information on a group in your area, please contact the organization directly, using the contact information provided below. 

If you would like to add a new regional child life group to our list, or make changes to an existing entry, please contact

International Child Life Groups

Child life specialists are currently practicing in locations around the globe. With members in more than 25 countries, ACLP is enriched by the unique experiences and contributions of an increasingly diverse group of practitioners.

Each of the following international child life groups represents child life specialists and/or related professionals in a nation outside of the United States. Although ACLP is not directly affiliated with any of these organizations, they may offer further opportunities for you to network closer to your home, or to connect with peers in a different country.
