Get Your Child with Special Needs Sleeping Great!

Getting a good night’s sleep has been a constant struggle for your child with special needs.  They may be awake for hours on end, or waking up constantly at night.  They may be starting their day at 2am, and crashing from exhaustion at school or daycare.  You know your child is barely getting through therapy sessions without tears or tantrums.

You can see that your child is struggling to just keep up, and you’re worried that their health and development is being held back by sleeplessness.  In those “once in a blue moon” moments that your child does get some decent sleep, you see how much better they are the next day.  You desperately try to put all the pieces together to make it happen again.

But, the “magic combination” isn’t working.  Most nights you find yourself rocking, patting, or co-sleeping to get your child to just calm down.  You’ve tried snacks, iPad, toys, and more just to get another 30 minutes of sleep.

You are exhausted...

Your chronic sleeplessness is leaving you feeling completely drained and overwhelmed, and too tired to be a better parent, friend, and partner.  Each day, you struggle to keep track of all the appointments, specialists, meals, and things keep falling through the cracks.  You are pouring every last ounce of energy into the day, and cannot keep anything in reserves.  

Every night, all you want to do is have just a little time to yourself to read a book, catch up on a show, or have a quality time with your spouse.  But, you’re tapped and you know you’ll be on call soon enough.

You know deep down there’s got to be an answer, but you’ve read blogs, visited the Facebook groups, asked your friends, and you’ve come up with nothing.  None of your child’s doctors and therapists can give you answers other than “this is what to expect”.  

And, you're fed up with all the dead ends.

Imagine that your child with special needs is finally getting the rest they so desperately need.  You see day in and day out that they’re finally making progress and shining at therapy.  You’re finally seeing them at their best! And, you have peace of mind knowing that the session won’t end in hysterics.

When your child is finally getting longer stretches of sleep at night, you can finally get the hours of rest you’ve missed out on all these years.  You have time to organize things for a great day tomorrow.  And, you have the energy to not only get your to-dos done, but maybe grab coffee with a friend.  And, if anyone has earned their “me time” — it’s you.  

You and your partner can finally go out on that date knowing that your child can go down for grandma.

Imagine your family firing on all cylinders — nights of tears, frustration, and sleep deprivation are a thing of the past.  And, in those moments they do happen to come up, you know exactly what you have to do to get back on track.  You know it won’t always be perfect, but you finally have hope that your child can be a great sleeper.  

You’re no longer grasping at straws to help your child rest easier.  And, you’re feeling confident and relieved knowing that you didn’t have to find the answers on your own.

We are sleep consultants for special needs families just like yours.  You are done with overwhelm and tearing your hair out over your child’s sleep issues.  We help children sleep better and independently, so parents like you can see their child thrive and sleep great for years to come. 

As a result of your child’s sleep action plan, you’ll:

Your child can...

Follow a super simple bedtime routine without fuss

Sleep on their own without needing any outside help

Sleep for longer stretches
at night

Your child's sleep action plan includes

Your Child’s Sleep Assessment

You’ll fill out a comprehensive profile about your child’s sleep, health, development and more so that we can pinpoint all the trouble areas affecting your child’s sleep.  This will allow our team of special needs sleep coaches to put together an exact plan to find lasting solutions.

Your Family's Action Plan

Designed just for your child, your action plan will give you exactly what you will do night by night to change your child’s sleep for the better.  You’ll be clear on how to meet your child’s nutrition, physical activity, and other needs so they’re tired and ready to sleep when their head hits the pillow.

90 Minute Action Plan Review

In your 90 minute session, we will walk through each and every step of your child’s plan so you feel 100% confident starting Night 1.  You’ll have answers to all the possible “what ifs” and road blocks, and know what to expect as you make changes in your child’s sleep.

Unlimited Follow-up Support for Success

Once you start your family’s Sleep Action Plan, you will have unlimited support via emails and phone calls with your coach for up to 8 weeks.  You’ll have someone there with you every step of the way to cheer you on, answer questions, track progress, make tweaks, and more importantly, celebrate wins!

“What To Expect” Troubleshoot Guide

Once your child is resting easier, you will get guidance on how to navigate any roadblocks that come your way — illness, milestone changes, vacations, nap schedules, and more. This way, you can have all the tools and confidence you need to make sure your family continues to sleep great.

You no longer have to feel completely lost when it comes to helping your child with special needs.  Your child can overcome their sleep struggles.  And, you no longer have to do it alone.

Melissa saved my life and that of my sweet baby! Well, maybe not, but definitely my sanity, my arms, and my days. It was a long, painful process but she gently guided us through each step, adjusted where necessary, and was 100% right even when I was SUPER doubtful that we could do it. The results are truly life-changing for my family. THANK YOU!

I cannot say enough amazing things about these sleep consultants, specifically Brittany. I was honesty at wits end and kind of hopeless when we started, but she helped us get our daughter sleeping in her own room, all night in just a few weeks. I'm so so thankful that I found her!

My husband and I were desperate to help our two year old sleep through the night in his own bed in his own room. Brittany met with us, understood our needs and goals, created a plan, and guided us throughout the entire journey. I give this company and Brittany my highest recommendation. You won’t be alone in this process and you will be successful if you follow their sleep plan. My son is now an amazing sleeper!

My daughter was 3 and a half when we knew we could not go on like this, and that we needed professional help. Traditional sleep training was never for us. We had tried everything. My child was waking up 6-8 times, with crying and tantrums. She struggled to soothe herself back to sleep. Our household was not getting quality sleep at all, and sleeping through was a far off pipe dream! This program was so much more than just sleep training. They helped us with a tailored program for my child, supplement suggestions, diet suggestions, social stories, daily support, weekly catch up calls, and more. The knowledge and resources blew me away honestly. They are so invested to help, and it is definitely worth the money!!! We are all getting more quality sleep. Thank you Brittany, you were our life saver! 💕

We sought out Melissa after 2 years of trying to manage sleep for our 2 y/o daughter and always being in 2 hours limbo, constant diaper changes and many bottle feeds loop through the night. We were very happy to have Brittany join with consultation to assist in our little one's sleep journey. She has been a pleasure to confide in, assisting to stay objective, and consistent, as well as adaptable to our child's individual needs. We always thought subjectively, trying to tend to basic needs of our child. But, Melissa + Brittany gave us a clear, concise, objective, multidisciplinary plan to tackle our child's sleep concern. We had hiccups here & there, unplanned. But, Melissa and Brittany assist to problem solve through our concerns. We were able to meet the goal set forth for ourselves and for our daughter in the time span scheduled and both Brittany & Melissa were very flexible with our schedules for phone calls and video calls. We are at a better state of sleep and so is our daughter. We have been very happy with their service and would recommend their guidance for parents having difficulty finding a sleeping solution for their little one's on their own.
