What parents/carers have said about our training . . .
“It was easy to understand and explained brilliantly. The knowledge I gained helped my confidence in supporting my child.”
“It made me realise the things we are doing are right and that when it doesn’t work why. I feel positive and that I can help my little boy and that I should trust my own instincts.”
“My husband listened in and he got a lot out of it. Until now I have primarily been responsible for the care of my autistic children.”
Using a tiered approach, the Tees Valley Sleep Service provides telephone support & resources, sleep workshops and 1:1 sleep assessments which, if all tiers have been accessed, can include the creation of a bespoke sleep plan. The service can be accessed by families if your child has an additional health or development need and is between the age of 2 ½ and 18 years.
