World Sleep Day

Regular Sleep, Healthy Future

It's World Sleep Day and this year's theme is "Regular Sleep, Healthy Future." We couldn't agree more! Getting a good night’s sleep is vital to so many factors in our waking lives - our mood, behaviour, physical and mental well-being. All children experience sleep difficulties at some point but for children with neurodevelopmental conditions sleep difficulties are much more common and more persistent.

That's why we're funding research to try to understand why sleep problems occur and develop effective strategies and techniques for overcoming them.

We use what we learn to directly help families through our Sleep Service, new online Sleep Seminars and Information Resources. We want to give you the knowledge, skills and confidence to deal with sleep issues so the whole family can get a good night’s sleep.
Don't forget to follow us on Facebook to see lots of special World Sleep Day videos and advice.

A unique set of wheels for 3-year-old Henry

3 year old Henry has to take his ventilator with him everywhere he goes. Like any young boy, Henry wants to play and be active, but it was becoming hard for his mum to keep up with him while carrying the ventilator. That's when our Innovation Centre stepped in.

Sleep: A Guide for Parents

Each month we're highlighting one of our guides and this month it's the turn of the sleep guide. It is packed full of information to help you understand sleep and the different types of sleep problems your child might be experiencing. It then gives strategies that can be used to improve sleep problems in all children.
