UMC Utrecht, one of the largest hospitals in the Netherlands, offers a diagnostic trajectory for children aged 6 to 12 with a developmental psychological disorder. This is always drastic event: it means changing to a new school, saying goodbye to their friends, spending less time in their known environment, and getting to know a lot of new people.
Tasking parents with preparing their child for such a drastic event is a lot to ask. In practice, many parents don’t know how to handle this responsibility. That's why UMC Utrecht's department of developmental disorders needed a more direct way to interact with the child. The result is the Expedition Book, a card-collecting game/booklet set, that presents all the kids need to know in bite-sized pieces of information.
