Sleep Difficulties associated with Neurodevelopmental Conditions

Sleep deprivation can have a major impact on the whole family not just the child. It can impact on mental and physical health, cause relationship breakdowns and affect the child and their siblings’ behaviours. Children with neurodevelopmental conditions (NDCs) such as autism and ADHD often struggle with daily functioning such as sleep, toileting and eating.    

This training will equip professionals who support children, young people with NDCs and their families to understand what lies behind any associated sleep difficulties and give them the skills required to manage these difficulties and support better sleep.

Training can be delivered as full-day, half-day or twilight sessions with learning outcomes tailored appropriately.

OFSTED and CQC guidance advises professionals and carers to work in a person-centred way and to be creative in order to minimise behaviour that presents as challenging.

Who is the training for?

This training is designed to support professionals working with children and young people presenting with a sleep difficulty associated with SPD and neurodevelopmental conditions and their families.

By the end of the course, participants will:

  • Have gained an understanding of sleep difficulties associated with SPD and neurodevelopmental conditions and the challenges they can present
  • Recognise the impact on the day-to-day lives of families living with a child or young person with sleep difficulties associated with SPD and neurodevelopmental conditions
  • Be enabled to promote a more positive relationship with sleep through improved understanding
  • Have identifed some strategies to share with families to improve the outcomes for a child or young person with sleep difficulties associated with SPD and neurodevelopmental conditions.
