Families of children and young people (CYP) with neurodevelopmental disorders, such as autism, face enormous challenges, with difficulties in sleep, and day time behaviour cited as priority areas for intervention. Access to services is inequitable and pressures are increasing on clinicians and care givers.

The course will cover recent updates and include discussions on:

  • the importance of multidisciplinary networks including health, education and social care around these children and families to improve quality of care
  • behavioural management of the range of daytime behaviour and sleep challenges often encountered by children with any neurodevelopmental disorder such as autism
  • the potential and the pitfalls of medications to manage sleep disorders, psychiatric disorders and behaviours that challenge
  • the specific challenges of continuities of care in relationship to COVID-19 and planning for the future

It will also include experts by experience – hearing from the children and young people and their carers
