Sleep Intervention

Intensive Treatment of Sleep Difficulties with Children

Autism is not a life sentence for poor sleep and tired days.

At Saskatchewan Behaviour Consulting we work with children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Down Syndrome & Developmental Delays and their families to improve and resolve sleep challenges. With proper education and therapy, and support from me and their caregiver, these children can develop functional sleeping habits. We specialize in working with families with children ages 18 months to 19 years who want the best for their loved ones, want to improve the quality of life for the child and reduce parent-caregiver burnout.

Why a Behavioural Approach for Sleep

As Behaviour Analysts, we view sleep as a skill set. Often, the clients that we work with do not have the skill set to aid good sleeping habits. Therefore, with intervention we can teach these “good sleep” behaviours such as: falling asleep quickly, staying asleep through the night, rising without much trouble each morning, and not feeling drowsy during the day.
