Sleep is essential for our health and well-being. Sleep supports growth and development in children and research has shown sleep affects immune health, cognitive functioning, and metabolism and can play a role in decreasing the risk of chronic disease. Yet, problems with sleeping are prevalent, affecting up to 50% of children at some point in their childhood and affecting up to as high as 80% of children with special needs.
Building BLOCS wants to help your child get better sleep! We offer sleep consulting that looks at your child’s specific sleep difficulties and then uses a research-based behavioral approach to address these concerns.
Our approach focuses on helping the child complete their bedtime routine, fall asleep independently, and stay asleep for a good night’s rest.
Our sleep consulting includes the following:
- Sleep Assessment– You will complete a sleep diary and meet virtually with a consultant for 60 minutes for an interview to discuss your child’s sleep difficulties.
- Sleep Plan– Based on your assessment and sleep diary information, an individualized sleep plan will be created for your child.
- Virtual Plan Review Meeting– We will meet virtually for 60-90 minutes to review your child’s sleep plan and discuss how to put the plan into action.
- Ongoing Support- Ongoing email or text support is available for up to six weeks after the start of the sleep plan.
Total Cost- $500
*If you already receive ABA therapy, your insurance may cover this service.
