PAEDIATRIC SLEEP TRAINING FOR OCCUPATIONAL THERAPISTS
Our Paediatric Sleep Training for Occupational Therapists course has been based on our very popular Paediatric Sleep Training for Professionals course, but has been tailored to better meet the needs of Occupational Therapists. We have added units such as Sleep as an Occupation and Sleep and Sensory Integration, and included cases studies that are typical of cases Occupational Therapists are likely to come across in their daily work.
The course takes a comprehensive look at both common sleep problems, as well as more complex sleep problems in the paediatric population as well as the sleep management approaches needed to address these sleep problems.
The course is available online and can be started at any time. Units are pre-recorded so that you can complete the course at a time suits you. The course is open to all Occupational Therapists currently working with children, whether working privately, for a statutory organisation or a charity.
The course is evidence based and all research is fully referenced so that learners have the opportunity to further expand their knowledge.
In the course we cover sleep problems in children aged 6 months to 16 years, but also look at the development of sleep from birth. The course content includes sleep problems in both typically developing children as well as children with complex additional needs.
Completion of this course enables access onto our Level Six Online OCN Accredited
