Many families who have adopted children, or are currently fostering a child, deal with sleep issues. Our six module course provides a comprehensive assessment of the child’s history, difficulties, needs and protective factors in order to understand a full scope of the child’s sleep factors. We consider information from various sources along with the child’s behavior in different settings, such as their home, school, and among their piers, to form a detailed plan to help give this child the best sleep possible within the family dynamic.
