Sleep is essential for the development of children, as well as for good academic performance and good mental health.
However, sleep problems are often missed or poorly managed in children. In this conference, we will look at the latest scientific discoveries in the field and how we can apply them in clinical settings, schools, and families to optimise children's sleep.
We will cover a number of common sleep disorders in-depth, how good sleep practices can become part of the school curriculum and how it can be disseminated to the wider population.
We'll look at the broader issues around sleep, with a focus on:
- The role of good sleep in child development, academic performance and mental health
- How specific sleep disorders manifest in this population and the challenges of diagnosing and treating these disorders
- The latest interventions that can address sleep in children on a population level
- Sleep disorders in specific populations, including children with neuro-disabilities, and how they are managed
- Practical techniques to tackle sleep problems in children and adolescents.
