Neurodevelopmental help: Sleep

Sleep is important for everyone. We need good quality sleep to complete our everyday tasks. We also need good quality sleep as this influences how we feel. For children and young people it is particularly important to help them to learn, concentrate, interact with others and join in with activities each day.

Short or distributed sleep can be common in children and young people with neurodevelopmental needs. They may therefore be at a greater risk of experiencing the negative consequences of poor sleep. These pages provide some advice and support to help with sleep where a child or young person may need some extra help.
