Nothing could be more challenging, exhausting and rewarding
than raising an autistic child. Not only is the situation
difficult for doctors and parents alike, but it’s manifested in oh-so-many ways
across a spectrum of symptoms and to varying degrees in different children. One
of the most commonly experienced problems, however, is trouble sleeping.
So I applaud the sleep counselors at a special school in Manchester, England, who are helping autistic children and their parents deal with disturbed sleep patterns.
