CHILDREN + SLEEP
Insufficient and poor sleep quality is a prevalent issue in children. Current evidence indicates that chronically disrupted sleep in children and adolescents can lead to problems developmentally, cognitively, behaviorally and emotionally. Behavioral interventions for pediatric sleep problems, especially in young children have been shown to produce clinically significant improvements.
Sleep problems are some of the most common parents often face. Raising healthy sleepers from the onset is not always an easy task. It takes consistent dedication on the part of often over exhausted parents struggling with their own sleep issues. Parents can overlook how important the role sleep plays in a child’s development mentally, physically and emotionally and may be too close to see what could be contributing to sleep challenges. The foundation for healthy sleep habits involves understanding how physical needs, developmental factors such as milestones, social factors and emotional needs, as well as environment, play a part in its success, with consistency being the driver behind it all.
We serve in addressing this issue by providing sleep health education programs for parents at hospitals and physician groups to identify sleep disorders and guidance for helping develop lifelong healthy sleep practices. Whether parents need help getting their child to sleep through the night, have difficulty with naps, issues with early risings or believe that the family sleep dynamic needs evaluation, we provide the education to support and guide them to make the best choices to suit their needs.
