TIP OF THE MONTH

IS YOUR CHILD HAVING
DIFFICULTY WITH SLEEP?

 

  • Avoid spending lots of non-sleep time in bed - (avoid watching TV, tablets, and phones while in bed)
  • Establish a predictable sequence of events - (such as brushing teeth and reading a story)
  • Children should be put to bed drowsy, but still awake -  (letting them fall asleep in other places forms habits that are difficult to break.)
  • Keep a sleep diary to keep track of naps, sleep times and activities to find patterns and target problem areas when things are not working.
  • Providing deep pressure before bed or to sleep can be helpful. Try Weighted blankets & Lycra sheets!

HELP
YOUR CHILD SIT FOR LONGER PERIODS!

> Schedule Movement Breaks

Have "exercise" time every day to have heavy work activities, such as pushing and pulling the laundry basket

> Keep a Bag full of Fidget Tools

Provide squeeze balls, tangles, rubber bands, and paper clips. Use oral strategies (frozen fruit snacks), when the mouth is busy the body will be calmer

> Decrease Screen Time

Too much screen time is linked with attention difficulties. Spend time moving throughout the day so a child is better able to sit when he/she needs to
