About the webinar

How does sleep deprivation affect children and young people in the education setting?

Sleep deprivation can cause children and young people to exhibit behaviours which look very much like ADHD. How does this impact on their ability to concentrate and learn?

In this follow up webinar to 'Sleep - The Fundamentals', Nickie covers some of the common issues encountered in her work and looks at simple, successful strategies which education settings can use to improve the sleep of their students.

What is covered in this webinar?

  • Why don’t sleep deprived children look tired?
  • How exposure to light helps children’s circadian rhythms
  • Simple strategies that educators can use to help improve children’s sleep – and the impact this will make on their concentration and attainment

Who should attend?

  • Parents / carers of sleep deprived children
  • Health Professionals wanting to know more about the how sleep affects concentration and can mimic ADHD
  • Teachers wanting to know more about how making reasonable adjustments in the classroom can positively impact on childrens’ sleep
  • Social care workers wanting to help clients with more understanding
  • Anybody who wants to know more!

N.B. It is recommended that you attend a ‘Sleep – The Fundamentals’ webinar beforehand to get the most out of this session.
