A one-day course providing senior health professionals with a better understanding of the sleep problems faced by children and young people and how to offer the best advice.
For professionals working with typically developing children:
A two-day course for professionals working with typically developing children. Participants will gain a comprehensive knowledge of sleep hygiene and sleep processes and learn how to apply those principles to children and young people’s sleep problems.
For professionals in an education setting:
A training day and teaching resource pack for professionals working with school-aged children and teenagers. Sound Sleep training raises pupils awareness of the importance of sleep for emotional and physical wellbeing, as well as of the impact of sleep on memory and learning for school success. It gives professionals and the pupils they are working with knowledge about basic sleep hygiene and how to get a good night’s sleep. All participants will leave the course with a USB full of curriculum-linked lesson plans, materials, assembly ideas and parent/carer workshop materials for Nursery to P7 or S1 to S6.
