I know what it’s like to have a child who struggles with falling asleep and staying asleep and from talking to other parents of autistic children it’s certainly not unusual. Some of the things that helped my son were; a routine, a calming sleep environment, a bed tent (which made him feel secure) and story CDs. My son seems anxious to let go and allow himself to fall asleep and, once asleep, he wakes often.

I found this article interesting and very relevant to our needs. I also checked out the sleep blog on the site which I found of personal interest. Do message me if you have any further ‘sleep gems’.
