Sleep & Bedtime Routines

Behavioural sleep issues often look different for every person. Some common examples include:

  • Taking a long time to fall asleep (delayed sleep onset)

  • Sleep interfering behaviour such as crying, calling out, asking for a 5th glass of water, etc.

  • Night awakenings or early awakenings

  • Short sleep duration

  • Phase shifts or Sleep-Wake Schedule Disorders

 

These issues can increase stress levels for caregivers and have significant impacts on the overall health and well-being of the child.

How a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst Can Help

A Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA) is a graduate level professional that utilizes evidence-based strategies based in behaviour analysis to teach individuals new skills that will improve the quality of their life. All services provided are individualized and goals are established using a collaborative approach between caregiver, child and BCBA. Once an “end” goal has been agreed to (e.g., falling asleep quickly and staying asleep through the night) the BCBA will create an individualized plan that takes into consideration the caregiver and child's values, culture and any other personal preferences identified to the BCBA. Within this plan the BCBA will outline how everyone will work together, and systematically move closer and closer to achieving the “end” goal.  

When working with a BCBA the goal is always to teach strategies that will help individuals achieve personal goals. That being said, the first step is ALWAYS ensuring that the barriers that are being encountered are behavioural and not medical. To ensure the goals that are being set are achievable and safe, BCBAs may require medical clearance prior to implementing strategies to change behaviour involving sleep, especially if any medical condition is suspected or identified to be impacting sleep.
