Are you ready to challenge the boundaries of your understanding and embrace a world where every family feels they belong? Join us for a groundbreaking webinar that promises to redefine the way we approach inclusivity and healing in both professional and personal spheres.

In this webinar, we offer insights into building strong and inclusive partnerships across racial divides based on the personal experiences of a parent and an early intervention provider. Our speakers will delve into their journey, spotlighting the challenges and triumphs of working through and beyond the impacts of structural racism. It was not until each person was able to acknowledge and work through these barriers, both as an individual first and then as a team, that their early intervention work was able to move forward.
Get ready to delve into important concepts such as power dynamics, self-regulation, impulse control, and cultural humility. Our goal is to equip you with the necessary knowledge to navigate relationships with empathy and understanding.

Embark on a journey of growth, learning, and understanding. Let's break down the barriers together and build bridges to a world where every interaction is colored by empathy and respect.

This training will explore different factors that contribute to sleep disruption for children with Autism. The course will cover sensory contributions, gut-health and diet considerations, and strategies for regulating the nervous system. Children with Autism have specific needs for sleep that can differ from neurotypical children so we will discuss how to create sleep programs that are inclusive to the differences in their systems and neural circuitry. Finally, we will explore long-term expectations and management of sleep, when to connect with sleep medicine, and alternative treatments for insomnia.  

Learning Objectives:

  • Attendees will explore the systemic differences central to children with Autism, including cortisol/melatonin production, sensory responses, gut microbiome, diet, and nervous system reactions to better understand how to evaluate a child's sleep needs.
  • Attendees will discuss 2 case studies about children with Autism to practice formulating a sleep plan that is inclusive to each child's unique needs.  
  • Attendees will discuss alternative treatment options for sleep disruptions including homeopathic supplements, sleep medicine, and body-work to provide additional options for parents when supporting long-term sleep management.
