In response to the local need for advice and support for parents of children and young people with
learning disabilities, a structured 3 week sleep clinic was developed by a community team who
targeted a small group of parents and carers and provided individualised sleep care plans. The clinic
was evaluated very positively by parents, resulting in an ongoing sleep clinic programme; and the
procedure has been shared with another Disabled Children's Team. Further evaluation could be
implemented to strengthen findings; however, it may be useful to share these initial findings more
widely with other localities.
