 Are You Sleeping? Why Children At All Ages (and Their Parents!) Often Sleep So Poorly, and What To Do About It!

Developed in consultation with pediatric sleep doctors, but sensitive to the unique needs of adoptive families, this webinar explores short-term and long-term strategies to address sleep problems.  Both parents and professionals working with children and/or parents will find these practical tips to be useful. Points covered include:  
•How much sleep is recommended for different age groups (5 - 18 years old)
•For children under 5, examples of sleep diaries are given and nighttime sleep trends explained.
•What drives good sleep?
•Benefits of sleep and the impact of lack of sleep, physiologically and psychologically.
•Recommendations for adopted children to help them get into healthy sleep habits.
•Neurological differences for children that are adopted.
•Developmental sleep challenges: it may not just be an adoption thing.

The webinar is presented by Dr. Julian Davies, Clinical Associate Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Washington where he co-directs the Center for Adoption Medicine and works at the longest running FAS clinic in the country. His interest in foster care and adoption began in Russia, where he started a summer arts and clown camp for Russian orphans. He now has a pediatric practice where 2/3 of his patients were fostered or adopted. Dr. Davies also created an award-winning online resource for pediatrics and adoption adoptmed.org.
