"Help Them Grow...so They're Good 2 Go" Timelines

Good 2 Go believes transition preparation starts at the time of diagnosis. For many SickKids patients this is very early in development and for others, it is during the adolescent years.  At the time of diagnosis, parents often wonder how they can raise children with health care needs to live fulfilling lives.  The "Help Them Grow…so they’re Good 2 Go Timelines" were designed to provide age-appropriate tasks and ideas for parents of younger children and ideas for teens/youth to develop independence in many areas of one’s life – socially, with family, in school and in the medical domain.

Currently 19 clinic-specific timelines are available to download. Ask your health-care team for a coloured hard copy or see if you can spot a poster version of the Timeline in your clinic waiting room.  

If you can’t find your clinic listed below, check out the General Timeline for ideas and resources that are appropriate for any child or youth with chronic health care needs.  (Or consider asking if your home clinic is developing a diagnosis-specific Timeline!)
