Parent Workshop: Sleep and Special Needs

This is our fifth free workshop for parents and will focus on Sleep in children with additional needs

The Space 2 Be Me Team are hosting a parent workshop about Sleep and Special Needs led by Dr Mark Brown

**Please read priority criteria before booking**

This is our fifth parent workshop and will focus on sleep difficulties in children with additional needs led by Dr Mark Brown, who has over 30 years experience of working with individuals with neurodiverse issues.

“The need for sleep is not just about being exhausted; it is about the mental and physical wellbeing of the person. I am sure you will have experienced increased irritability, poor memory and concentration, emotional distress and even depression, and that is just you as a parent. Not only does the person with the sleep problem experience these as well but also there will undoubtedly be increased aggression and behavioural problems, the occurrences of clumsiness and subsequent accidents rises. So it is more than just feeling tired; in fact sleep is a biological need that allows the body and mind to slow down and repairs itself”.

The session will take place on 29th April 2021 at 7pm via Zoom and is free.

Due to funding restrictions, families from Maidstone (including non-members) will be prioritised for this event, then members, and finally families in West Kent. Register via Eventbrite and we will check you eligibility. We will only contact you if there is an issue, otherwise assume your booking remains.
