If this image of a peacefully sleeping child is just a dream to you, you’re not alone. Up to 40% of children will experience a sleep problem at some point in their childhood, and up to 86% of children with special needs will suffer with sleep problems. Poor sleep patterns impact on learning and cognitive ability, children who are sleep deprived often fail to meet their full potential in school. These facts come from the Children’s Sleep charity, a charity that supports parents and trains family support workers to help parents too.

Here is a round up of some sleep resources on this site and elsewhere for children of all ages:
