ASC sleep clinic workshop

A practical workshop for parents and carers of
children with autism who have sleep problems
Thursday 21st June from 10am to 2pm
Together Trust Centre, Cheadle, Cheshire SK8 1JE

Autism and sleep

Many children with ASC have poor sleep patterns:
• Some children have complex bedtime routines which must be followed each night
or the child becomes distressed
• Some children have anxieties about going to sleep and will only settle with a parent
lying next to them
• Some children settle to sleep late at night and then wake after only a few hours.
The list is endless. Each case is individual and these problems can last for years. The
effect on the child and their family can be devastating. Parents often don’t know
who to ask for help, and when they do manage to pluck up the courage to tell a
professional about their child’s sleep problem they are often told; “Well, he has autism,
what do you expect!”
We believe that poor sleep patterns are not an integral or inevitable part of an ASC.
There is something that you can do about it.
What is the workshop about?
Inscape House School initiated the ASC sleep clinic service seven years ago specifically
to work with parents and carers of young people with ASC. This workshop is an
opportunity for us to share the knowledge and experience we have gained and to
discuss practical strategies. There will be opportunities to discuss issues with other
parents and carers.
