Sleep Help for Kids with Special Needs

Hi, I’m Katie Loring.

I’m a behavior analyst (BCBA) and special needs consultant, located in South Carolina. For the past fifteen years, I’ve worked in many different settings to learn as much as I can about helping people with autism spectrum disorders (ASD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and other neurodiverse challenges.

Helping parents and families with special needs is personal to me. I know firsthand what it is like to have ADHD in the school settings and also what it is like to be a caregiver of children and adults who have trouble communicating and self regulating. I practice empathy and kindness and in combination with empowering parents to add effective teaching tools to their toolkits.

In the course of my work, I’ve interacted with and helped hundreds of parents teach their children important life skills that include toileting, communicating, tolerating delay and disappointment, trying new foods, going to the doctor, playing with their siblings and peers, and much, much more. Over the course of my work, I noticed that one factor that can make or break a person’s progress towards their goals is if they (and their caregivers) are sleeping on a consistent schedule

In 2020, I decided to start learning as much as I can to help families get a good night’s sleep. I eventually reached out to Melissa Doman for mentorship and guidance. With her coaching and with my own independent studies, I learned how to help parents of neurodiverse children get back to sleep.

I am excited to work with your family to help get your children (and your SELVES) a good night’s sleep.
