does your child struggle with sleep?

sleep is such a foundational piece to brain development, it is essential for mental health, and, yes, many autistic children struggle with falling and staying sleeping.

this week, I'm joined by Courtney Zentz, pediatric sleep expert and certified sleep coach. Courtney shares her personal experiences with postpartum anxiety and depression and how she got into helping parents create better sleep routines and environments for kids with sleep difficulties.

this episode will help you: 

  • understand some of the reasoning behind sleep difficulties in children
  • gain tips and tricks for how to tackle nighttime and sleep
  • understand how you can work on this at home, but also know when support is needed
