Sleep: Treatment

Often parents and carers find that the sleep plan produced from the assessment is all they need to help their child to sleep better. However, I can provide further support to put this plan into action where necessary.

If the outcome of the assessment suggests that there may be an underlying sleep disorder, a referral will be made, with parents’ consent, to the appropriate professional to carry out further investigations and to provide any necessary medical treatment.

It is my belief that most sleep difficulties can be resolved without medication. However, on occasions, short term use of certain medication can be beneficial. If I believe that this is the case, and parents are in agreement, I will liaise with paediatricians or other relevant health professionals to discuss the prescription of these medications.
