EVENTS: Interesting online events for carers and parents of children with disabilities or additional needs

MWH Admin Team Event, News

Contact, the charity for families with children with disabilities, is offering an online Sleep Session, 1st of July, 19:30-21:30pm via Zoom.

It is common for all young children to have sleep issues, but more common for children with disabilities and those with additional needs.

During the COVID-19 lockdown, it can be extra challenging to manage sleep for your child. This online workshop gives the opportunity to hear other parents’ experiences, learn new strategies and share as much or as little of your story as you wish.
