Get professional help
Although this site provides a lot of information and guidance, ultimately you should seek professional help to address ongoing children's sleep problems (whether that is through the NHS or privately). However, there are very few sources that tell where you can get that help! We aim to resolve that. In time, we plan to have a facility here, where you will be able to enter your postcode to get information about services local to you.
I am very fortunate to be associated with a wide range of experts, with whom I am collaborating. We are working together to build this resource, so do have a look at some their work by access the information shown below.
