Children need good sleep as much as they need good food. Being tired affects your whole family’s mood, health, learning and behaviour, at school and work.

If this sounds like you, don’t suffer alone. This March, get help from Scope’s Sleep Solutions team and their bite-sized training and support. The team has years of experience working with families of disabled children and those with additional needs. Ask questions, pick up tips and find out more about what support is available.

Sleep Solutions: get involved in Scope’s online events 11th, 12th, 18th, 19th March

According to a Contact a Family survey, over 70% of disabled children have sleep problems.

Sleep deprivation in children can affect their mood, concentration levels, behaviour, health, learning… the list is endless! A child with sleep problems will also have huge impacts on parents and siblings – sleep is crucial for everybody’s health and well-being.

The most common sleep problems children experience are:

  • Problems falling asleep
  • Problems staying asleep
  • Waking too early in the morning

Scope can support families and professionals to help to resolve sleep difficulties by offering:

  • Tips for tackling sleep problems
  • Sleepy foods
  • Average sleep needs
