Supported by Dunelm, The Sleep Charity has launched a brand-new Children’s Sleep eBook as part of its ‘Tired of Being Alone’ campaign to support parents and carers who have a child or children that struggle to get good quality sleep.
It’s a helpful guide that shows how to overcome common sleep issues, that parents are not alone and that help and support is available. When we have children, we expect there to be some disrupted nights. Unfortunately for some families the sleepless nights can continue for months and even years. Parents can feel isolated, lonely and often judged. We want to reassure those who are affected with children’s sleep difficulties that there is help available, and that things can change. Around 4 in 10 children will experience a sleep problem at some point and this rises to 8 out of 10 children where there is a diagnosis of Special Educational Need or Disability (SEND). These problems are typically persistent and do not resolve themselves without intervention.
If you require further help or support with your child's sleep, our trained Sleep Practitioner Mrs Clarke can help, and can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org
