Sleep is essential for human survival. Lack of adequate sleep leads to many detrimental health effects.
Common behavioural sleep problems include difficulties falling asleep, an inability to maintain sleep and early morning awakenings.
Evidence has shown that paediatric behavioural sleep programmes improve
sleep duration in children and thus have a positive impact on the whole family.
Using the Sleepy Fox app, carers are taught to understand the science behind sleep and to create a personalised bedtime plan along with strategies to help the child get a good night’s sleep.
