Delighted to work with Auritsm Guernsey to fund a Sleep Better course to train 10 sleep practitioners to deliver five workshops to support families to establish better sleep quality.
Renowned sleep expert Vicky Dawson, founder of The Children’s Sleep Charity, delivered two days of intensive Sleep Better training to professionals working with children, young people and adults diagnosed with ASD.
The course looked at the impact of disrupted sleep on the whole family: sleep disorders, causes of sleep difficulties from diet to sensory issues and offered a range of strategies to improve sleep quality and duration.
Sleep deprivation can have a serious impact on emotional, physical and mental health and can make it difficult to function normally at home, in school or college, or at work. The course included up to date scientific research which will enable skilled support to be offered to families who may be living with wide ranging problems linked to disturbed sleep patterns.
Evaluation of the Sleep Tight programme, the basis of the Better Sleep training course and which is already used by over 30,000 people, shows an average improvement of more than 2.5 hours sleep per night, which has a huge impact.
