Sleep Help for Children with Autism
parent coaching to achieve sleep success
Having a child with autism is a challenge. But having a child on the spectrum who isn’t sleeping? I wouldn’t wish that on my worst enemy.
You’re facing a challenge that so many other parents with kids with autism are facing. Your child can’t sleep through the night. Maybe they are taking too long at night to fall asleep, or wake up too early. Maybe they wake up in the middle of the night and stay up for hours. Whatever the sleep struggle, it’s affects the entire family.
A lack of sleep leads to your child suffering, and you suffering. Kids with autism who are sleep deprived have more difficulty succeeding in school or in therapy, and are more likely to have abnormal behaviors and hyperactivity.
If this isn’t bad enough, when your child doesn’t sleep…you don’t sleep. When you’re exhausted, you can’t be the parent and spouse you want to be. The frustration, exhaustion, and lack of energy that comes from sleepless nights stops you from being at your best.
Your child doesn’t deserve this situation, and neither do you.
I have worked with children with special needs over the past decade. The kids with autism that I saw every day at work were often having sleep problems, and their parents were suffering and miserable. I wanted to help them, but didn’t have any answers. Then one day, a mother contacted me telling me that she had found a program that helped her boy with special needs (who before slept terribly and always needed mom beside him) learn how to sleep through the night. He now slept all night, and independently! The program was called the Sleep Sense Program, created by a sleep expert Dana Obleman, and I decided I had to get certified as a pediatric sleep consultant. I couldn’t watch more amazing families suffer needlessly.
I noticed there were no other pediatric sleep coaches seemed to know how to help kids with autism. Combining my new knowledge about how to sleep train kids with my experience of working with children with special needs helped me guide and coach parents about how to help their children sleep all night.
My goals for all my clients are for the child to sleep completely independently and through the night. I design a customized sleep program for the child and teach parents how to carry it out. I’m there for every step of the way. We help your child sleep better by working together as a team.
