An introduction to sleep assessment with disabled children and teenagers. An afternoon seminar with Julie Sutton. Shrewsbury, UK in October 2017

  This specialist sleep seminar by Interconnections will introduce delegates to the principles of sleep assessment and supporting families of children and young people with disabilities.

As an introduction to sleep assessment, it will be relevant to people who support disabled children and their families in health, education, therapy, social care and residential care services.

The seminar begins with an overview of what happens when children fall asleep and what typical sleep looks like. Common sleep problems are then explored and ways of working in partnership with families.

This leads to the main focus of this seminar: the importance of uncovering underlying causes of sleep problems through detailed assessment, to reach an informed understanding of individual cases which enables the design of appropriate sleep interventions.

In summary, attending this event will equip participants with a better understanding of sleep difficulties encountered by this group of children and young people and build their confidence in sleep assessment which leads to effective and tailored sleep advice.

The venue is Riversway Conference Centre, Shrewsbury, SY1 3LE.

The date is Monday 2nd October 2017.

Times: 1 pm to 4 pm (arrive at 12.30 for refreshments).

Cost: £45 per delegate. For a professionals and a parent coming together - £60.
