Do you mean a developmental psychologist? If so, then you're gonna have to get a phD which can take about 5 years on average to complete AFTER you already have your B.A. YOu can work in research or academia, although there is a possibility to actually work with children and do assessments and evaluations (although that is easier done with a clinical psychology degree). But then, I don't even know if this is what you were referring too. . .

from what i have heard about being a child life specialist is that there are many options of where to work. you can work in a hospital setting, specialist office (like an outpatient oncology clinic, or somewhere where a child may be going through some medical procedure that could be scary). i dont know how many child life specialists hospitals or doctors offices hire- i guess that would be dependent on finances and hospital budgets. it is a very fullfilling job, a huge chessed, and a really big kiddush H-shem.

also, in terms of education you need a degree in psychology or sociology or something else along those lines. you need to take a certain amount of classes in child development. but i would check on the child life society website for more info. you also need a certain amount of volunteer/interning hours before you can get certified. in terms of salary, it isnt the best paying career but again you should do more research into that- if thats something that is important to you.
