An hour before bed, turn off the TV and all other screens (such as iPad, games consoles and phones), dim the lights and close the curtains to begin the visual clues it’s coming up to bedtime.
Avoid drinks of cola and chocolate at bed time. Have a sleep food snack to help your child with their sleep.
Half an hour before bed, it’s bath time. If your child finds a bath too stimulating, bath earlier in the evening. On a non-bath night, a cuddle in a warm towel will help.
After the bath it’s time to brush teeth and get ready for bed (put on pyjamas).
As well as holding sleep workshops, we work with local authorities and the NHS in some areas to help parents with disabled children who have sleep disorders.
