Autistic Sleep: Achievable Solutions for Common Difficulties
October 25 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Sleep is a common issue for autistic people of all ages. Difficulties sleeping at night in toddlers and young children may be the first sign that parents notice prior to diagnosis. In contrast, autistic teenagers and adults may experience higher rates of exhaustion linked to study or work. Differences in sleep are as varied as the autistic spectrum, which means easy answers are hard to find.
To help guide us through this complex issue, we are joined by expert speaker Laura Crowley. Laura is an autistic adult, parent of an autistic child and autism consultant with over 22 year’s experience.
Laura is a long time sufferer of sleep difficulties herself, having experienced sleep walking, nightmares and anxiety since a young age, but her fascination with sleep intensified with the birth of her own little one who struggled to find sleep. Laura will discuss the latest research surrounding autistic sleep, explain why autistic individuals can struggle with sleep and explore some simple strategies which can improve the quality and quantity of sleep achieved.
