Sleep Workshop with CHFS
Sleep is essential for children’s growth and development, and important for our mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing.
If your child or young person is struggling to sleep it can be exhausting for them and for the whole family. More than half of all children may have difficulties settling or sleeping at some point in childhood. Children with additional needs and learning disabilities can be more likely to experience sleep difficulties.
Children and Family Health Surrey (CFHS) have put together a virtual Sleep Workshop. The videos give advice, information and tips about supporting your toddler, child or teenager including those with additional needs and learning disabilities with sleep. We recommend you watch the videos in numerical order.
